The panel invites papers on the 20th century experience and history cultures related to it. Interdisciplinary approaches focussing on issues of intermediality and negotiation in the process of history-making are welcomed.
The panel problematizes how the dynamics of meaning-making of the 20th century past is formed in relation both to experience and to pre-existing narratives. One of the main questions this panel poses is about the circulation of historical interpretations through personal, local and national narratives. Another question related to the first one is about the 'travelling' of historical images within the European cultural space, the role played by mediation in the transfer and translation of images and stories about the past across national and cultural-linguistic borders.
