Twenty-eight students and doctoral candidates from the 4EU+ universities take part in a winter school “Memory in Conflict”. The school is organised within the 4EU+ Flagship 2 “Europe in a changing world: Understanding and engaging societies, economies, cultures and languages”.

Both collective memory during the conflict and conflicted memories of mutual experiences are the main subjects of the winter school. During the event participants – 4EU+ students and doctoral candidates – will have an opportunity to debate a painful memory of conflicts and collective traumas, such as forced migrations or genocides. Organisers will include a critical approach to politics of shaping history through various media (like museums and monuments) and the ways of how memory is used as a tool for transmitting values and ideas in societies.



The programme of the winter school includes various lectures, seminars and workshops which will be run by the researchers from the 4EU+ Alliance universities: University of Warsaw, Charles University, Heidelberg University, Sorbonne University, University of Copenhagen, and the University of Milan.
