Collective memory as a theoretical and research concept

Collective memory as a theoretical and research concept

A research group centred around the UNCE workplace pays attention to the issue of collective memory in its socio‑cultural, political and historical context in the 20th century. The multidisciplinary approach and cooperation of the project exceeding the boundaries of institute and faculty is typical.

Research topics include:

  • Memory of Totalitarian Regimes

  • Traumas of post‑conflict societies (the Holocaust, the civil war in Yugoslavia, colonialism)

  • The role of memory in international relations and cultural diplomacy

  • Memory in art, education and culture.
