Presentation

This two-day Workshop seeks to provide a comparative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary platform to discuss many cases of how the silenced heritage of the displaced populations in Europe and beyond is being negotiated in the present day. Breaking away from the traditional nation-centred orientation, we will focus on the memories of displacement, focusing on the people who were forced to abandon their homelands and previous lives and to re-establish their lives and homes elsewhere, as well as on the displaced memories about the violent removal, both symbolic and physical, of the vanquished others from their social spaces.
