Contemporary History and the Future of Memory

EVENT SERIES

Contemporary History and the Future of Memory

Far from promoting a "competition of memories," the series seeks to create a debate and establish an exchange between various groups, pointing out the similarities and the differences of their historical experience. These comparative exchanges generate a better understanding and knowledge of Others, and a fruitful international dialogue: a dialogue necessary in international relations and in today's globalized world.

Sponsored by Contemporary History and the Future of Memory, a project of the DLCL Research Unit. Co-sponsored by the Forum on Contemporary Europe, the English Department, Program in Modern Thought and Literature, the Center for African Studies, and the Stanford Humanities Center.
