“Memory Off-Site” Colloquium 2020, November 6

Malach Center for Visual History (IFAL, FMP CUNI) and Beyond Hegemonic Narratives and Myths Project (IIS, FSS CUNI) invite you to their jointly organized research colloquium entitled “Memory Off-Site”, taking “place” on November 6, 2020, from 13:00 to 17:00 (CET). Organized in an online form, due to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak related situation, it aims at bringing together researchers who will share their experiences with dealing with memory topics outside of their usually associated primary loci.

The constraints of our current times pose numerous new challenges in regard to research practices, be it limitations of travel, social contact or access to sources and resources. However, the research community had been facing similar challenges in various contexts even before the recent normality shift and generated a collective capacity for overcoming these challenges, consisting of methods, technologies and skills which make such a research possible. This  colloquium provides platform  for experience sharing and capacity building,    demonstrating on presented cases how the phenomena of translocality, transnationality and digitalization have reshaped or marked new paths of research.
