Narratives of Survival

Narratives of Survival, Friday 27th and Saturday 28th January 2006, University of Warwick

This conference aims to draw together people working in a wide range of academic fields to explore how we record, remember and commemorate the major traumatic events of the 20th century (from the Boer wars to the massacres in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia), and what are the long-term social, cultural and political consequences of the tragic events that involved large numbers of people.

Keynote speakers include:

  • Gunnar S. Paulsson (author of Secret City: Hidden Jews of Warsaw 1939-1945. Yale University Press, 2002)

  • Vieda Skultans (author of The Testimony of Lives. Narrative and Memory in Post-Soviet Latvia. Routledge, 1998)

  • Janina Struk (author of Photographing the Holocaust. I.B.Taurus, 2004)

Registration for the conference (keynote speeches, papers, accompanying events, tea and coffee) will cost 50 (35 for those attending for one day). For more information about registration visit http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/ctccs/news/conferences
