CfP: Contesting Memorial Spaces in the Asia-Pacific, 6-7 November 2020

On 6-7 November 2020, Kyushu University Border Studies will host an international conference devoted to the operation and conceptualization of contested memorial spaces.

The aims of this event are threefold:

  • To consider how sites of memory operate across political scales, from the intensely local to the national, international, and global;
  • To understand how these spaces provide points of contact; and
  • To reflect on whether such sites can be transformed into spaces able to accommodate political difference.

We invite interested scholars to first submit abstracts (of up to 250 words) to the organizers by August 31, 2020.
