The AHM conference 'Memory, Word and Image: W.G. Sebald's Artistic Legacy' invites scholars, artists and other practitioners to present papers, posters or workshops.

Taking the case of W.G. Sebald’s interdisciplinary word and image practice on memory and presences of (migratory) lives as touchstone for our discussions, this conference seeks to foster academic, professional, artistic and public scholarship by exploring cutting-edge interdisciplinary research, findings, techniques, practices and theoretical advances in the areas of memory, word and image.

Topics of the conference include, but are not limited to considering memory and interdisciplinarity in relation to:

  • art’s responses to literature
  • politics of memory, identity and cultural imagination
  • writing with images
  • migration and borders
  • museums and (literary) exhibitions
  • politics of intervention and resistance narratives
  • artistic, writerly and scholarly strategies to deal with post-war realities
  • non-human witnesses of trauma
  • crossing disciplines to slow down reception

Deadline of the call: 20 June 2019.
