7^th July 2020
Workshop Convenor: Dr Alena Pfoser & Dr Guzel Yusupova (Loughborough
*/Fostering dialogue in heritage communication/*//
How do we talk about contested histories in a way that encourages
understanding and dialogue with the ‘other’? In the workshop we will
analyse excerpts from tour guide narratives and interviews with tour
guides who work in settings shaped by memory conflict. We will talk
about risks in heritage communication and identify productive and less
productive strategies for communicating difficult topics.
8^th July 2020
Workshop Convenor: Dr Agata Fijalkowski (Leeds Law School)
*/Exploring the Cold War Visually/*
Do photographs speak legally? This workshop will consider this question
in connection with the dispensation of justice in the immediate post-WW2
period. We will look at images, archival materials, specific vignettes
and readings – with the aim to engage, challenge and unpack key legal
historical narratives about justice from that particular time frame.
*Please note that the pre-conference workshops have been scheduled so
participants will also be able to attend substantive parts of the main
conference on 8^th July.
