Online Seminar Series
Beginning in 2021, the Historical Dialogues, Justice and Memory Network will host a live and interactive online seminar series. Conducted through Zoom, these hour-long seminars enable researchers and authors to present new and developing work to a global audience. Seminars are free and open to anyone and include a 25 minute discussion period.

The Dialogues invites prospective presenters to contact a member of the Organising Committee. If you are interested in presenting a seminar, please send an abstract (or the paper/book or other work from which the seminar will draw) to one of the seminar organisers along with a CV or short bio. Please note that presentations should be within the Dialogues’ broad ambit.

Information about upcoming seminars is available LINK. If you want to receive notifications for future online seminars, join the Dialogues’ biweekly newsletter at

Memory Studies Portal Now Online
We are delighted to announce the launch of a new memory database! The Memory Studies Portal (MSP) is a bibliography and virtual repository for the growing community of memory scholars. It is a collaborative project of the Memory in the Disciplines initiative at Stony Brook University and the Institute for the Study of Human Rights’ Alliance for Historical Dialogue and Accountability at Columbia University. The MSP responds to two trends, the ongoing consolidation of a field of memory studies and the ongoing debate as to whether memory studies is or should be “interdisciplinary” (involving contributions from scholars from various disciplines within a shared framework), “transdisciplinary” (involving a generative synthesis of disciplinary approaches), or merely “multidisciplinary” (characterized by several parallel, largely independent specialized conversations). This debate provides the opportunity to investigate the relations between disciplines. The MSP bridges disciplinary divides between (and among) the social sciences and the humanities Accordingly, our initiative will allow scholars from disciplines as diverse as sociology, literature, history, psychology, philosophy, political sciences, performance studies and art history to engage in a sustained conversation – and, ideally, to enrich one anothers’ understanding of memory.  Since the MSP is a work in progress its growth also partly depends on your input. We thus encourage scholars/users of the MSP to alert us to bibliographic entries or any other suggestion as to how we can improve and expand the MSP. Please send an email with your thoughts, concerns, and missing/additional items you would like us to upload into the MSP.

Invitation to Participate in the Mapping Historical Dialogue Project
The Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR) at Columbia University invites you, as an expert in your field, to participate in the development of the Mapping Historical Dialogue Project (MHDP). The goal of the MHDP is to establish an online interactive geographical map that addresses mechanisms of contested memory in post conflict countries. The mapping process will document projects addressing the memory of historical violence. Building on a crowdsourcing model, the project will rely on incremental contributions to connect a diverse network of individuals who often do not have access or knowledge of one another’s work. The project is open access, and its scholarship and resources and will be available to a wide community of users. More information about the map can be found here. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at
