    Categories, Boundaries, Horizons

    Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and Early Modern Studies Conference (ANZAMEMS 2019)

    Categories and boundaries help us to define our fields of knowledge and subjects of inquiry, but can also contain and limit our perspectives. The concept of category emerges etymologically from the experience of speaking in an assembly, a dialogic forum in which new ways of explaining can emerge. Boundaries and horizons are intertwined in their meanings, pointing to the limits of subjectivity, and inviting investigation beyond current understanding into new ways of connecting experience and knowledge.

    Global Justice and New international Ordrer: The Case of Sino-african Relationships

    The reconfiguration of the current world order within the contemporary international society constitutes the general framework of our reflection. Emerging countries such as Brazil, Russia, India and China aim to weigh on the course of history and to re-shape a balance of powers dating back to the end of the twentieth century. These countries intensify their external policies towards strategic areas rich in raw materials, especially in Africa, where Western nations also have interests. The persistence of global poverty, according to Pogge, refers to global justice, since this phenomenon results from a world order that structurally endorse an injustice which, furthermore, is not in line with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

    Judging the Past in a Post-Cold War World

    The collapse of the Soviet Union accelerated the search for justice and truth on the part of many millions of people whose lives had been overshadowed by the cold war, in many countries, for nearly half a century. Demands for justice and for recognition of suffering and loss have resulted in national Truth and Reconciliation Commissions, prosecution (or attempted prosecution) of state officials, politicians and military officers and the construction of monuments and memorials as sites of memory. They have inspired an outpouring of literary and artistic works, and a flourishing film and documentary industry. This conference aims to trace these various ways of judging the past both in the countries at the centre of the Cold War and in those that were swept up in the wake of its confrontations. How have we and how can we come to terms with a past that is still so present? The organisers seek contributions on attempts at redress, for example, legal and social, or through the arts, media and literature.

    Ideas and ways of heritage: Scientific thought, praxeology and social knowledge in patrimonialisation

    Critical heritage studies have been popularized by way of various disciplines, and several recent studies have emphasized “the infinite specificity of heritage and patrimonialisation”, and at other times, the differentiated paradigms of heritagization, patrimonialisation, heritageification, etc During the session "Ideas and ways of heritage: Scientific thought, praxeology and social knowledge in patrimonialisation"  we will explore conceptions used in heritage-making, as they appear or are particularized in the scientific literature, local expertise and the collective intelligence in various regions of the world.
