National forgetting and memory: the destruction of “national” monuments from a comparative perspective
On March 11, 2021, the NISE conference ‘National forgetting and memory: the destruction of “national” monuments from a comparative perspective’ will be held online.
This conference aims at shedding some light on the relationship between the formation of a nation and the elements that might constitute its destruction by focusing on one specific case study: the destruction of “national” monuments.
3 keynote speakers and 13 lecturers will elaborate on the matter throught the day, tackling different cases from Europe, USA, Canada and South Africa.
The conference is open to the public but registration is mandatory. Further information as well as details on registering are available here.
Archives – borders, identities, reflections

Following the “Digital Humanities on Thursday” (2019), this convention brings scholars from different disciplines together to reflect on perspectives, methods and possible future applications of the digital in the medieval sector, with an opening to the European strategies for sharing and disseminating results of the research.
Digital technologies and methods are getting the topics and practices of medieval studies increasingly broader, with important implications on research, teaching and on general public engagement.
The chance of virtually reconstructing some largely fragmented historical contexts not only raises new questions and suggestions for investigation, but also makes contents and problems of great complexity available to a non-specialised public, contributing to improve awareness of the historical heritage and increase the demand for cultural training.
