On 24 June 2021, Alena Pfoser and Guzel Yusupova will be running an online workshop on heritage communication in contested environments, in connection with the conference Interdisciplinary Perspectives in Transitional Justice.
How do we talk about contested histories in a way that encourages understanding and dialogue with the ‘other’? In the workshop we will analyse excerpts from tour guide narratives and interviews with tour guides who work in settings shaped by memory conflict. We will talk about risks in heritage communication and identify productive and less productive strategies for communicating difficult topics.
The workshop is directed at PhD students and early career researchers. You can find more information including on how to register here.
