Nordic Summer University Circle 4

Building on the achievements of the highly successful Study Circle “Narrative and Memory: Aesthetics, Ethics, and Politics” (2017–2019) and pursuing its engagement with storytelling practices that “open up new possibilities for reshaping and reimagining the European project,” this Study Circle shifts the focus from narrativisations of memory to narrativisations of violence within social, political, cultural, and scientific discourses. In so doing, we aim to foster a trans-disciplinary dialogue among scholars, journalists, writers, activists and other practitioners interested in identifying and scrutinising the potential implications of representational violence on our lives and our planet’s future.
