New Research Network: "Narrative & Memory: Ethics – Aesthetics – Politics"

Published on 24 March, 2017

Funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers, coordinated by Hanna Meretoja & Eneken Laanes

Description from the network's homepage:

This interdisciplinary research network supported by the NSU (nordic.university) – an international research initiative funded by Nordic Council of Ministers – explores the complex intertwinement of narrative and memory in processes of cultural self-understanding. It addresses the ethical, aesthetic, and political dimensions of the interaction between narrative practices of sense-making and the shaping of cultural memory. We investigate how different storytelling strategies of literature, audiovisual arts, social media, and oral testimonies address the legacy of twentieth-century European conflicts and how they travel across national borders.
