Together with Yifat Gutman, author of Memory Activism: Reimagining the Past for the Future in Israel-Palestine (2017), I am organizing a workshop (November 2018, New York City) that will examine memory activism from a comparative perspective and develop more sophisticated conceptual approaches.
Together with Aline Sierp (Maastricht University), I am working on an edited volume on Agency in Transnational Memory Politics. The contributors are currently revising draft chapters and we hope that the book will be completed in 2018.
In summer 2017, I participated in a fascinating conference that brought together scholars of memory and of social movements. I presented on ‘Cycles of Contention and Moments of Madness in German Memory Politics’ History, Memory, and Social Movements, Institute for Social Movements, Ruhr- University Bochum, July 19-20, 2017. My contribution will be published in a volume edited by Stefan Berger and Sean Scalmers.
In November 2016, I gave a paper entitled ‘Pluralism in remembrance? The interplay between new and old activists in German memory politics’ at the conference Has the Past Gone Away? The Future of Memory in Germany , at the BMW Center for German and European Studies, Georgetown University, November 18, 2016.
