Subject: VS: Remembrance, Trauma Transmission & Experiential learning
international & interdisciplinary symposium
27-29 May 2019, University of Turku, Finland
CALL FOR SYMPOSIUM PROPOSALS
Can we create and develop educational platforms to better equip our students for engagements in communities to work for sustainable peace and discrimination free societies? Can we connect knowledge and experience from different fields, combining non-formal and formal sectors, (non)governmental workers, professionals from memorial sites and museums, local and global activists, artists, and engaged individuals, to raise awareness of common shared histories and repeating toxic patterns? Can we learn together about the importance of remembering to avoid repeating history's darkest parts to emphasize its efforts in sustaining the peace and well-being of people? How important is a deeper understanding of our own histories for stopping the potential transmission of collective traumas through transgenerational dialogue?
This interdisciplinary international symposium seeks to bring together a group of scholars, artists, activists, practitioners, experts from memorial sites and museums, and other engaged individuals to reflect on the concealed hatreds, prejudices, and normalized oppressions that are learnt through unhealed and transmitted traumas, which are perpetuated daily through seemingly harmless everyday practices. It also seeks to determine how we can successfully break this pattern through systematic experiential learning.
We especially welcome creative and experiential ways of addressing the theme through learning by doing, active participation, and engaged dialogue among all participants and across all disciplines.
