CFP: Memories and violence: problems and debates in a global perspective

Journal: Encounters: An international journal for the study of culture and society
Guest Editor: Alejandro Castillejo-Cuéllar
Submission deadline: August 1, 2011

Description: »Understanding the ways in which societies have experienced multiple forms of violence has been at the forefront of a number of academic debates in the last few decades. Of great importance to these debates is the question of how a violent past is socially articulated in the present. How do societies and specific communities render meaningful a violent past? How is the process of memorializing connected to the broader cultural and political landscape? What are the connections between memory, identity and community? Between silence and speech?«
