On the occasion of the Eleventh Berlin Roundtables on Transnationality, the WZB and Irmgard Coninx Foundation cordially invite you to a series of lectures on: Memory Politics: Education, Memorials and Mass Media. Coming to terms with a painful past is crucial for the social reconstruction of societies emerging from armed conflict or totalitarian rule and facing a legacy of large-scale atrocities against humanity. Yet, memory is a double-edged sword: It can either lead to mutual understanding that overcomes existing ethnic, religious or social cleavages and thereby fosters sustainable peace, or it can perpetuate cleavages and thereby harden existing tensions and re-open new conflicts. The last years have seen an unprecedented surge in memory politics in national, international and global contexts. The legacies of colonialism, wars and genocides became the focus of fierce national and international debates. National narratives in post-communist as well as in other states have been shifted and newly construed. New memorials and museums are still being errected all over the world. Textbooks, school curricula, and mass media are incorporating revised and sometimes completely changed versions of history. As part of a series of conferences and workshops organized under the heading “I Have a Dream: Political Culture in Divided Societies,” the Eleventh Berlin Roundtables on Transnationality seek to assess how the teaching of history, public commemoration projects, media and public discourse affect contemporary reconciliation and identity formation processes within and between nation states. Reception and book signing after each lecture. Please respond by October 15, 2009 to: or fax: (0 30) 25491-684.
