Skeptical reactions to the rise of memory studies have
focused on the viability of concepts such as "collective"
memory. Can societies really remember collectively? More to
the point, can individuals really remember what they have
not directly witnessed or experienced? Is to speak of
collective memory simply to speak of ideology or political
fantasy? The concept of cultural memory has overcome this
binary opposition between the individual and the collective,
attending to their reciprocal relationship and the cultural
grounds on which their mediation takes place (Assman).

How, though, does memory work when events are remembered
across and between cultures? In an age of globalization, is
it still possible to speak of local and national memory, or
do the local and national always exist in implicit and
explicit dialogue with the transnational? Holocaust- and
memory studies have begun to address these questions in
tracing the globalization of Holocaust memory as a trope by
which other modern atrocities are shaped and remembered,
and, of course, the Holocaust has been incorporated into
national memories in order to forget indigenous genocides
and shore up ideals of nation (Huyssen and Patraka).

Conversely, theories of vicarious witnessing have posited an
ethical dimension to the remembrance of events across
cultural boundaries. The ideas of "prosthetic" and "post"
memory conceive of the remembrance of events not witnessed
by those born afterwards or elsewhere, and of mass- mediated
memory as something that does not wholly belong to (and
define) the familial, ethnic or national group (Hirsch and
Landsberg). (The idea of witnessing across cultural borders
has not been without controversy in the academy.)

Recent innovations in comparative historiography (Moses,
Stone, Moshman), laying vital groundwork for developments in
memory studies, have sought to remove the "conceptual
blockages" in comparing modern atrocities, moving beyond
notions of the Holocaust's uniqueness that might inscribe a
hierarchy of suffering across modernity, eliciting the
structural continuities and discontinuities between
atrocious events – between genocide and colonialism. Just as
Moses has configured modernity in terms of a racial century,
so in sociology and literary studies race has constituted an
overarching narrative that brings together diverse modern
spheres of both culturally creative and violent activity and
identification (Cheyette and Gilroy).
In postcolonial studies, concepts such as trauma have
enabled a spatial rather than linear approach to the
experiences of colony and postcolony (Durrant). In
philosophy, conceptions of 'bare life' have allowed an
international consideration of state sovereignties and their
biopolitical regimes (Agamben). In architectural and urban
studies, city development and its architecture is found to
articulate a globalised vernacular, which has implications
for spaces and places of memory and memorialisation. All of
these disciplines find that it is increasingly difficult and
problematic to isolate representations of past, which in
turn calls attention to the need for the comparative study
of memory as it takes an increasingly transcultural form –
as Rothberg's recent ground-breaking work on the
multi-directionality of memory has shown.

The conference organizers invite abstracts on the subject of
transcultural memory from across the disciplines – English
and Comparative Literary Studies, History, Cultural Studies,
Architectural Studies, Cultural Geography, Film Studies,
Media Studies, Politics, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology,
the Visual Arts, and so on – but recognize that the study of
memory will often involve an interdisciplinary and
transdisciplinary approach.

Conference papers might address but are not limited to how
concepts of transcultural memory might relate to:

- new directions/new paradigms in trauma studies
- testimony studies
- new media
- new technologies of historical documentation and
- memory as performed and embodied; memory and the senses
- conceptions of race
- citizenship
- 'bare life'
- postwar, post-event, post-epochal 'structures of feeling'
(e.g., post-1918, -1945, -1968, -1989 and -9/11)
- the recent interest in the perspective of perpetrators
- memory and gender
- memory and religion
- colonial, postcolonial, and transatlantic studies
- the study of museums, monuments, and memorials, as well as
the practical implications for heritage industries,
memorialization and urban planning
- issues of law, justice and reparations
- legal definitions of genocide
- slavery
- the relationship between genocides and other modern atrocities
- memory and terrorism
- the social implications of natural catastrophes and disasters

 The Social Dimension of Religion in Civil Society A Comparative
 European Perspective

 Conference held at Ersta Sköndal University College Stockholm, Sweden
 September 17 - 19, 2009

 The place of religion in modern European societies has for some time
 been a relatively neglected question among scholars outside of
 departments of theology and religion. This absence of interest has to
 be understood against the background of both the relatively secular
 character of many European societies and the dominance of a
 secularization thesis that understood religion to be a relic of a past
 soon to be entirely overtaken by a post-religious, secular social
 In fact, Europe stands out as an oddity in a global context where even
 other Western countries, prominently the United States, are intensely

 Furthermore, with increased immigration and the rise of new forms of
 religiosity in Europe, it now appears that claims of the imminent
 decline of religion may have been premature. Moreover, in the wake of
 the many challenges faced by the European welfare states has followed
 an increased interest in the character and role of European civil
 society, not least the role of civil society in the provision of
 welfare, identity and community.

 In this context some have argued that faith-based organizations
 constitute a very important part of civil society, both from a sheer
 quantitative point of view and in terms of range, durability, and
 personal significance. Thus, religious institutions, it is claimed, do
 not simply provide an opportunity for practicing a personal faith; it
 also serves a strong base for community and identity. This translates
 into both tangible social services for its members and a more subtle
 sense of belonging. In a world increasingly dominated by the cold
 logic of the market and the formal care provided by the institutions
 of the welfare state, religious communities are often said to
 constitute a "haven in a heartless world."

 On the other hand, the revival of religiosity, and not least overtly
 political and at times aggressive expressions of religious belief, has
 created a significant backlash - at times dubbed "Enlightenment
 fundamentalism" - that has been steeped in an anxiety that cherished
 modern and secular values such as gender equality and the equal civil
 rights for sexual minorities will now come under attack by faith-based
 political parties and movements that promote repressive practices
 hostile to equal right for gays and women. These concerns regarding a
 resurgent religiosity is often linked to related worries about the
 effects of increased immigration and the specter of a multiculturalism
 that will fundamentally alter European social and cultural life.

 Our goal is to bring together a diverse group of scholars from both
 Europe and elsewhere with the aim of bringing a comparative
 perspective to our analysis and discussion of religion in contemporary
 European civil societies. By inviting not only theologians and
 students of comparative religion, but also sociologists of religion,
 historians, and scholars focused on the social dimension of civil
 society, we hope to allow for a broad context to investigate one of
 the most crucial developments in modern Europe: the return of

 Submissions to present papers on the conference themes are welcome.
 The deadline for submission of abstracts (max 200 words) is June 1 and
 deadline for papers is August 10, 2009.

 Additionally, the Church of Sweden Research Unit is supporting the
 open introductory lecture.
