This seminar series is currently paused. Updates to come.
The CHS post-docs have for the past years organised a text based seminar series on critical heritage - open to everyone intersted - focusing on different themes. Previous themes have been Heritage and Material Culture, Heritage and Memory and Heritage and Affect (see below for details about texts etc for these seminars). The current series is hosted by current postdoc's Evren Uzer and Feras Hammami, and the theme is Heritage and Conflict.
Through the seminar series we would like to explore conflict theory and use it to understand - but also explain - the different images of conflicts involved in heritage practices.The seminars are open to everyone interested in parttaking in critical reading and discussion of texts related to conflict. The seminar is ambulating and venues shift, while time and day is more or less constant: Tuesdays 12.30-14.00 (Bring your lunchbox!)
If you want to be added to the email list and get access to the seminar's dropbox folder, or if you have questions about the seminar, contact Evren Uzer or Feras Hammami. Details about each seminar will be posted on this site the week before when it is also sent out to the list.
Information about next seminar will be updated soon
