The leading theme of the Memory Studies Association Fifth Annual Conference is “Convergences”, and we would like to invite you to join us in discussions around the interplay of mnemonic layers. The event gives the opportunity to debate all aspects of memory studies. Despite the online form of the conference we aim at creating a safe space for fruitful academic exchange, networking, and learning. 

This year, the conference’s hosting city is Warsaw, and the event is co-organized by the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity, the German Historical Institute Warsaw, and the University of Warsaw. The East-Central European environment of the conference gives us a unique perspective into a region filled with overlapping memories. But how do the local practices, traditions, and studies compare to the global ones? And taking the question further: how does the intertwining of human and non-human, digital and analog affect our memories?

Join more than a thousand passionate scholars and researchers on July 5! Registration for non-participants will be open on June 1.
