Call for Papers: Freiburg-Queen Mary Doctoral Colloquium 2017: "Reconstruction and Reconciliation"

Graduiertenschule Humanities, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg Friday, November 24th – Saturday, November 25th

Call for Papers (Pdf),

The 2017 colloquium of our exchange for doctoral students will be dedicated to reconstruction and reconciliation as acts of resolving enmity, conflict and division. Examples can be found in all periods and in many cultural contexts. We invite papers on personal  and communal aspects of the topic from the whole range of the humanities. Case studies might address:

  • social rituals for resolving conflict and accomplishing reintegration into society
  • social actors in reconciliation processes (e.g. mediators)
  • the reconstruction of a specific country and/or society after war, disaster or internal division
  • institutions of reconstruction and reconciliation (e.g. re-education programmes; truth  and reconciliation committees, amnesties)
  • kinds of behaviour suitable for resolving conflict
  • the role of ‘heroes’ and myths in processes of reconstruction
  • the role of the media and the arts, material culture, architecture and (urban) space in processes of reconciliation and reconstruction
  • representations of reconstruction and reconciliation in the media and arts
  • reconciliation, remembering and forgetting

 

Papers must be limited to 15 minutes.
Deadline for proposals (200-300 words): 20 October 2017
 

Please send proposals to the following address: Katharina.Jeckel@humanities.uni-freiburg.de
