>         World War II has been one of the most important events and highly
>emotive subjects in German as well as in Russian / Soviet history. Today the
>recalling and remembering of the wartime experiences is significantly
>gaining in importance. Due to the ruptures taking place in both countries in
>the last decades - the decline of the Soviet empire and the unification of
>Germany - a re-evaluation of recent history has emerged in both countries.
>As a consequence it has been possible to discuss hitherto taboo subjects as
>certain phenomena of war and occupation in both countries.
>
>         At a time when hitherto quite monolithic discourses of public and
>collective memory start to break down into conflicting fragments, private
>memories and their exploration are of growing interest for scholars from
>various disciplines. The historical upheavals have forced various
>negotiations with the past. The unresolved reflections on the tensions and
>traumas of individual and collective memory of World War II have granted in
>Germany and in Russia a special place for memoirs, autobiographical writings
>and other kind of material which diagnose a dialectic of past and present in
>attempts to recall or to forget past history. Reflection upon traumas and
>collective taboos is linked with other discourses and cultural models - on
>the German side the national unification is linked with the question on
>whether the Germans should be seen as victims of war as well, and in Russia
>which has seen a wealth of studies into collective historical memory over
>the last few years, there are conflicting modes including the tradition of a
>monolithic and heroic recalling of the Great Patriotic War and a critical
>focus upon the tragedies during the war.
>
>          It is this situation of re-negotiating national self-identities by
>constructing the past which is based on collective traumas that our
>conference will focus on as its central topic. It is one of the prerogatives
>of such a multidisciplinary conference to examine the fractures,
>interactions and intersections of private and collective memories at
>different times and different places in different texts as fiction,
>autobiographic writing, movies, monuments, oral history or historiography.
>The conference will also focus on the question of how and in which ways the
>reconstructive working of the memory is anchored in the cultural traditions
>of national imagery production, i.e. what are the topoi which are taken up
>and reproduced by reconstructing the memory of the past. A comparative
>conference paying attention to the parallel changes in Russian and German
>societies can contribute to the discussion on whether and how meanings given
>to similar experiences differ in different contexts. It is obvious that with
>the topic of the war and its recalling we will also focus on methodological
>issues of how to read and understand analogical experiences structured by
>different cultural backgrounds.
>
>Plenary Speakers:
