Call for papers

Travelling Memories: Lives in Transition

Helsinki, 27-28 November 2014

Papers are invited for contributions to the fifth international symposium of

the Finnish Oral History Network Travelling Memories: Lives in Transition

hosted by the Finnish Literature Society in collaboration with the Academy of

Finland. Our intention is to bring together scholars of oral history and life

history writing to discuss the travelling of both people and memories across

time, place and different media. The invited speakers include Alessandro

Portelli (University of Rome Sapienza), Baiba Bela (University of Latvia) and

Outi Fingerroos (University of Jyväskylä).

Mass migration and new media are the key characteristics of today's world.

Though people have always moved from place to place, never before has migration

in all its forms affected so many people's lives as it does today. Even when we

ourselves do not move mediated memories of people living in diaspora and exile

are a part of our everyday life. Travelling is also an essential feature of

memory. To stay alive memories must continuously be on the move. Memories move

across and beyond territorial and social boundaries from one individual to

another, from one media to another, and each time new layers of meaning are

added to them.


The program will include keynote lectures, paper sessions and a closing panel.

The language of the conference is English. Proposals may be submitted for

individual papers or workshop sessions. The proposed papers should focus on

individual remembering and methodological aspects related to the topic.

All proposals should include a title and a maximum 250 word abstract (per

paper). Proposals for whole sessions should include all abstracts of the

suggested papers.  Please include with the proposal the following information:

-      name (with your surname in CAPITAL letters)

-      affiliation

-      postal address

-      e-mail address

-      telephone and fax numbers


Proposals will be evaluated according to their focus on the topic. Please

e-mail your proposal as an

e-mail attachment by 26 May 2014 to fohn at finlit.fi. The acceptance or rejection

of proposals will be   announced by 13 June 2014.


The admission to the symposium is 50 ? (standard) / 35 ? (Concession:
