When: June 8-11, 2011
Taking a retrospective look at the heart of achieving the American Bicentennial, we suggest the following topics:
- The temporary budget of history and memory.
- Understanding the past, remembering the past, using the past
- The politics of the time in the history and memory
- The political uses of the past and the celebrations: the Centenary and Bicentenary in retrospect.
- Commemorations and redefinitions of the "recent past", the "remote past" and "distant past."
- The "national histories" and commemorations
- The presence of the past in public space
- Political uses of representations in the recent past, the press and the state
- Ethical and political dimensions of the history of the recent past
