The (Un)Sayable in Public Discourses about the Past

Friday, 14 May 2010

University of Reading, School of Modern Languages and European Studies

The workshop brings together contributions from researchers in the field of discourses about problematic pasts (Holocaust, colonialism, war) in Germany, France and Italy. More specifically, it looks at discourses about these pasts and at debates about what can and cannot be said about the past, what should or should not be said, what needs to be said and what may not be said about it.

Speakers: Prof Ruth Wodak (University of Lancaster), Prof Martin Evans (University of Portsmouth), Dr Rebecca Clifford (Swansea University), Prof Bill Niven (Nottingham Trent University), Prof Heidrun Kämper (Institute for German Language, Mannheim), James Taylor (Imperial War Museum, London), Dr Melani Schröter (University of Reading).
