Mnemonic Migration

Transcultural transmission, translation and circulation of memory across and into contemporary Europe

This conference aims to explore how memory travels through the aesthetic medium of literature and are translated into new local communities of remembering.

The conference concentrates on the travelling of memories (Erll 2011) within or into the cultural, geographical and symbolic boundaries of Europe, perhaps fostering new knowledge and attention to events that are otherwise marginalized in a Westernized perspective on the European past and identity
