Announcement

Due to the close relation between Memory and History, namely in the modern nation-state construction and in sub consequent practices such as commemorationism, discussions over past and historical or collective memory took central stage in social analysis debates. In Anthropology and History field production, a part of this discussion focuses on the processes of making, defining and selecting heritage conveyed by identity construction dynamics.

So, as each epoch has its own memory social itineraries that change according to the historical forms that constitutes them, and also builds, reproduces and obliterate dominant and dominated memories, it becomes essential to present the processes of ‘making history’ and ‘construction’ of collective memories, in their agents and dynamics. An analysis of the dominant ‘cadres de mémoires’ present in each society is an instrument that reveals social hierarchies and status positions and constitutes a place where the production of identities is extremely relevant. Similarly, the construction, reproduction and projection of material, memory and collective spaces are crucial in the maintenance of social memory.

This panel calls for papers focused on cases that discuss the themes proposed, namely memory, history, identity, heritage and space.

Proposals must be made via the online form available on the conference website, not by emailed attachment.
