The International Seminar “Collective Remembering, institutions, and cultural dynamics” will be held on April 17, at 2.30 p.m., in the Sala de Atos of the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Minho.
This seminar aims to discuss how social representations of the past shape and are shaped by the present and how they influence the imagination of alternative futures. The dynamics of remembering and forgetting, both at the individual and collective level (associations, media, educational institutions, museums, etc.), will be debated taking into account multiple contributions in the field of social sciences and humanities, aiming to foster inter and transdisciplinarity, as well as dialogue between academia and society at large.
The event will have as guest speakers James H. Liu (Massey University, Aotearoa – New Zealand), Giovanna Leone (Sapienza University, Rome, Italy) and Fátima Ferreira (Institute of Social Sciences, University of Minho), with moderation and commentary by Sheila Khan (Communication and Society Research Centre, University of Minho), Fátima Moura Ferreira (Lab2pt, University of Minho) and Fabiano Assis da Silva (Communication and Society Research Centre, University of Minho).
This meeting is organised in the framework of the MediaMigraActs project “Migrations, media, and activisms in Portuguese language: decolonising media landscapes and imagining alternative futures”, in partnership with the Communication and Diversity Seminar of the Communication and Society Research Centre (CECS).
The seminar will be broadcast via Zoom (the link will be available soon).
