Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Humanities, Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania
This conference is focused upon an important issue for contemporary society that of interpreting the past and writing its history, .... proposing that history is not a stable body of fact(s) but a shifting range of meanings produced by different cultural, social and political practices (such as rituals of public memory, historical re-enactments, museums, memorials et al.) and that the general images of the past are substantially affected by art (literature, visual arts, theatre, film, performance). .... The conference will open a discussion concerning the performative means of (re)constructing the past, going beyond a passive interpretation of historical texts, activating a participation in the 'performing' of history."
Please note that the deadline for submitting papers is now past.
