History – memory – myth: Re-presenting the past.

International Society for Cultural History annual conference

History – memory – myth: Re-presenting the past.

Oslo, August 3rd to 6th, 2011

The conference theme “re-presenting the past” communicates with the international and interdisciplinary field of collective memory, which has grown considerably during the last decades. Studies of commemorations and festivals, monuments, exhibitions and museums, historical films and narratives are now numerous. Terms such as social memory, collective or collected memory, kulturelle Gedächtnis, lieux de mémoire, the presence of the past and the use of history all illustrate the scholarly interest in how the past – or images of it – is constructed, composed, negotiated and built up, but also demolished, dismantled and rejected. This constructional work has been investigated on the individual level, concerning personal memories and private history. Studies in this field have also focused on processes of nation building, the construction of ethnical or other group identities, and heritage care and preservation.

Second call for papers is now open! Dead-line is 15th of  february 2011. See here for a preliminary list of sessions.

The conference is also proud to present a selection of keynote speakers: Tony Bennett, François Hartog, Lotten Gustafsson Reinius, Yael Zerubavel and James E. Young.

The conference is organized by the Department of Cultural History and Oriental Languages at the University of Oslo in cooperation with The Royal Gustavus Adolphus Academy for Swedish Folk Culture and Kultrans.

The ISCH2010 was held in Turku May 26th to 30th, 2010.
