Prairie Centre for the Ukrainian Heritage, St. Thomas More College / University of Saskatchewan, Canada / The Kowalsky Eastern Ukrainian Institute / Kharkiv V. N. Karazin National University, Ukraine / Ukrainian Oral History Association

Oral History Conference / International Scholarly Symposium
Kharkiv, Ukraine, 11-12 December 2009
Proposals Due: April 15, 2009

Since the 1990s, oral historical research has been gaining much recognition in post-independence Ukraine as well in the Ukrainian studies in general. As a valid field research practice, oral history has become important means of accessing most intimate circuits of knowledge – highlighting private and public lives of individuals or communities, and exploring their unique historical or generational experiences. Yet, while there is much evidence of active empirical research in Ukraine and amongst the Ukrainian communities elsewhere in which oral historical method is utilized, further conceptualization of oral historical research – as an academic discipline with its own theoretical and methodological frameworks – is needed, in order to facilitate analytical interpretation of gathered personal testimonies of historical events and experiences.

Proposals Due: Monday April 13, 2009

It has frequently been said that we live in an „age of testimony.“ Eye-witness accounts from survivors of war, genocide and other human rights violations fill our airwaves and our bookshelves. Large Holocaust testimony projects such as Steven Spielberg’s Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation have recorded tens of thousands of survivors. Thousands more have told their horrific stories to truth and reconciliation commissions and international tribunals in a growing number of countries including Canada.

Oral history, we believe, has a pivotal role to play in educating ourselves and our communities about the social preconditions, experiences and long-term repercussions of (mehr …)

Symposium: Biopolitics of Scale, 07.-08.04.2009, Botersloot/NL

Montag, März 30th, 2009

Berlage Institute (Rotterdam) Jan van Eyck Academie (Maastricht) Rotterdam, Netherlands

Zeit: 07.-08.04.2009,
Ort: Berlage Institute, Botersloot 25

The symposium „Biopolitics of Scale“ addresses the role of modern states in processes of urbanisation by focusing on the production and transformation of scalar regimes.

The production of scales as platforms and containers of social practices was an essential part of the emergence of modern urbanism as a biopolitical project since the 18th century; it facilitated the introduction of new procedures of state administration of life and distribution of risk on the territory.

The investigation of production, merger, dissipation and transformation of scales reveals a common denominator of the current processes of urbanisation, including the management of the growth of cities; the regulation of circulation of commodities, people and ideas; the distribution of infrastructure, security and welfare; new doctrines of monument protection; and the introduction of new financial instruments which facilitate these operations.
