What can the politics of memory mean in contemporary Europe? What does collective memory mean, especially collective memory, in relation to the emergence of a culture of memory? These questions are at the heart of this of this webinar. A first round table will address these issues in the form of an interview and explore the complex between memory, identity, history and politics in Europe. A second round table will focus on the memory and the trinational Upper Rhine area, based on a study that combines the complementary points of view of a historian and a sociologist: Memory of Europe – Memory of Peace.
