The Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM) is hosting the conference 'Witnessing, Memory and Crisis' in Amsterdam.

Event details of Witnessing, Memory and Crisis
Start date 30 June 2022
End date 2 July 2022

Although the concept of 'witnessing' has been widely theorised regarding memories and heritages of conflicts and events of mass-suffering, it remains a significant concept, which can help readdress present-day socio-cultural discourses. This conference sets out to explore the crisis of witnessing as well as the individual and collective positions and responsibilities of the witness in times of crisis. How can various aspcts of witnessing across disciplines and contexts enrich our understanding of our realities? And how do current changes to mediums of witnessing (both physical and digital) impact the way we receive, experience and share information?

Confirmed keynote speakers:

  • Prof. dr. Frank van Vree (NIOD)
  • Dr. Orli Fridman (Singidunum University)
  • Prof. dr. Charles Jeurgens (University of Amsterdam)

The conference fee is €50 for employed academics and €10 for students. You can register online and pay the fee in cash upon arrival. The registration is now open.
