FROM NORTHERN IRELAND TO ALGERIA:DEALING WITH CONTESTED MEMORIES THROUGH EDUCATION
Ulster Museum, Belfast
Friday 20 September 2019
10.00am - 1.00pm
The Ulster Museum is hosting a half-day symposium that will consider agonistic approaches for post-conflict societies coming to terms with contested memories. The recent National Museums project on 1968 and an ongoing French Ministry of Armed Forces project on the Algerian War have both demonstrated the value of placing education at the centre of confronting such difficult pasts. This event will explore the shared methodological and theoretical underpinnings of both projects and what lessons their common approaches have to offer in their respective locations and beyond.
