• Plurality of Memories in Europe in Global Perspective

    In recent years, memory studies have become an essential and dynamically developing, interdisciplinary area in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The ‘Plurality of Memories in Europe in a Global Perspective’ project is a trailblazing initiative for European memory studies. By adopting an interdisciplinary approach in research and education, our project is focusing on the multicultural plurality of memories in Europe in general, with emphasis on mass violence, politics of memory, and memory wars in Central, East and Southeast Europe in particular. In this respect, we will be exploring multiple dimensions of local memories and put them in a dialog with national and transnational actions within and beyond Europe. The main goal is to work towards more inclusive public history and collective memory and to build a research and teaching network for interdisciplinary, institutionalized memory studies.
