  • 18. 11. 2022 - 15:15

Don’t miss the opportunity to join online on Friday 18 November an event organized by the MA International Relations, Leiden University. The lecture will be lead by Dr. Orli Fridman, who works primarily as an Associate Professor at the Belgrade-based Faculty of Media and Communications and as a head of the Center for Comparative Conflict Studies at Singidunum University. Her interdisciplinary research focuses on critical peace and conflict studies, memory politics and memory activism.

During this event, Dr. Fridman will feature her 2022 book Memory Activism and Digital Practices after Conflict: Unwanted Memories. The book investigates the study of memory activism. It examines the appearance and growth of memory activism in Serbia amid the legacies of unwanted memories of the wars of the 1990s, approaching the post-Yugoslav region as a region of memory. By presenting in-depth accounts of memory activism practices, on-site and online, the book analyses this evolution in the context of generational belonging and introduces frameworks for the study of #hashtag #memoryactivism, alternative commemorations and commemorative solidarity.
