1-2 April 2019

Faculty of History, University of Bucharest (Bd. Regina Elisabeta 4-12, Sala de Consiliu)

This conference examines the transnational dimensions of dealing with the past in post-1989 Central Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. It focuses on transnational activism, transfers of knowledge and expertise at bilateral, regional or international levels, and the role of international organizations and NGOs in reckoning with mass violence. The conference explores the circulation of ideas within these regions, as well the way memorialization practices in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union were shaped by and influenced in turn criminalization discourses in other geographical contexts (Latin America, Asia, Africa).
