en/counter/points' co-I Dr Joanna Wawrzyniak is one of the key organisers of this year's Memory Studies Association Conference from 5th-9th July.

There will be a great set of keynotes and a wide range of sessions with some truly excellent international academics from early career to world renowned. There is a new ticket rate of 25 EURO for non-presenters:

The leading theme of the Memory Studies Association Fifth Annual Conference is “Convergences”. Join in discussions around the interplay of mnemonic layers. While the event offers the opportunity to debate all aspects of memory studies, the East-Central European environment of the conference gives us a unique perspective into a region filled with overlapping memories.

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?

Despite the online form of the conference, the aim is to create a safe space for fruitful academic exchange, networking, and learning. 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.

Join more than a thousand passionate scholars and practitioners on July 5! Registration for non-presenting participants is now open!
