Second Summer School "How towns (do not) remember"

On August 6-10, 2018, Rivne hosted the Summer School on memory studies "How towns (do not) remember". The event was organized by NGO “Mnemonics”.

University students, NGO representatives, museum employees, and media workers attended the Summer School. Lecturers at the school were the representatives of various scientific disciplines: history, sociology, political science, and philology. Its central issue was what cities want to forget and to remember due to local and national history policy strategies.

In addition to the lectures of leading experts, the Summer School program included trainings, field trips, quests, and numerous discussions that analyzed specific local monuments, memorials, literary works, museums, and exhibitions based on current theoretical approaches to memory policy.
