Excerpts from conference description by the organizors:

Ørecomm – Centre for Communication and Glocal Change invites researchers, artists, students and practitioners to its 3rd Festival, 13–16 September 2013.

The Festival will start in Roskilde (1 day), move on to Malmö (2 days) and close in Copenhagen (1 day).

The third Ørecomm Festival puts the memory turn under scrutiny, addressing living memories in relation to two other central components of public sphere engagement: citizenship and social justice. As citizens we (can) actualize or make a public – and in this making we inevitably engage with social justice.

Citizenship and Social Justice are of primary importance in societal debates concerning what, how and for whom we should remember – not least in transitional processes of attempted healing and conciliation. Memory work may be decisive for a society’s ability to live and develop in peace.

The Festival organizers welcome investigations and interrogations of memory and how it affects aspirations for social justice and sustainable development. The Ørecomm Festival invites researchers, artists, students and practitioners to send proposals for papers, art works, and other interventions that scrutinize memory and explore its relationship with media, citizenship and social justice.
