Austere Histories: Social Exclusion and the Erasure of Colonial Memories in European Societies
28-29 november, at the Museum of Work in Norrköping.
This symposium asks how a current politics of austerity affects our cultural memory. Are we witnessing a turn toward austerity in theories and practices of historiography, as well as in pedagogies of history? Can we speak of an austere historiography, an enforcement of conformity on Europe past and present that is linked to the ongoing changes in social relations, for migrants and on the labour market?

REMESO publishes the REMESO NEWSLETTER, in Swedish and English. We only send it out twice per semester with news about the Institute, seminars, new publications, etc. Also, sometimes, but not often, we use the list to inform about specialworkshops or REMESO Graduate School Courses.
To get the REMESO Newsletter in English go to this site and sign in: https://lists.liu.se/mailman/listinfo/remeso-nbrev-eng
Some formulations on the sign-up-site give the impression that all members can post letters to list members, but you cannot. The list is strictly for sending out, sparsely, information from REMESO to members on the list. All other trafik is rejected.
