"Narratives of Difficult Pasts in Contemporary Culture"

Global history is filled with tragic incidents that are remembered and dealt with in diverse – and often competing – cultural narratives. This interdisciplinary panel discusses how difficult pasts are given meanings in narrative practices in contemporary culture. The discussion focuses on narrativity of memory; narrative structures of narrating difficult pasts; ethics and aesthetics of these narratives; their pedagogical potentials and challenges; and power relations, politics and identity projects included in them."
