La Cátedra MHSXX pone en marcha un Seminario de Investigación donde se puedan difundir y discutir los principales resultados de los trabajos, publicados o no, centrados en la memoria y la violencia de los conflictos traumáticos del siglo XX. A través de una perspectiva internacional e interdisciplinar, el Seminario pretende establecer un foro de discusión permanente donde confluyan las últimas líneas de investigación y las reflexiones metodológicas que han renovado estos estudios desde el ámbito de las ciencias sociales en las últimas décadas.
Cada sesión del Seminario se pondrá en marcha a través de un paper previo o un texto publicado recientemente que servirá como base de la exposición y del debate posterior. Un discussant realizará una presentación del autor y un breve análisis de la obra. Tras la exposición del autor, de una media hora, se pasará a la discusión posterior entre los asistentes.
Las sesiones del Seminario se celebrarán en la Facultad de Geografía e Historia de la UCM cada dos meses, sumando un total de cinco seminarios por curso académico.

Conference Objectives

The ever-repeated incidents of non-combat-related massacres and mass violence that happen in time of conflict have been a source of analysis by academics, the media, and legal authorities. Typically, such events are concealed, and witnesses silenced or ignored, often in the name of “moving on.” Yet the impulse to tell the story seems universal, and may be essential if true reconciliation is to be achieved. Worldwide, movements have emerged to break the silence and to restore dignity to those who died. In many cases the mass grave has become a potent source of evidence that may serve to validate the accounts of witnesses, whether the outcome is prosecution or more simply to “set the record straight” for history. In many contexts, artists have been inspired to create visual art, literature, and theatre as ways to narrate, validate, or memorialize such atrocities.

Although many disciplines have contributed to the worldwide debate on violence, memory, and human rights, rarely do they come together to share their insights. This small conference will offer a unique, interdisciplinary forum, in which forensic scientists may interact with poets, or historians with legal scholars, anthropologists and philosophers. They will examine questions such as: What circumstances precipitate mass violence? What is the impact on surviving individuals, families, and communities? How are massacres remembered – or forgotten? When and how can perpetrators be brought to justice, and victims acknowledged and compensated? What is the importance of exhumation and the presence of the physical body? What is the role of scholars, not only in documenting atrocities, but also in facilitating subsequent action and reparation? And how do the humanities, in the form of art, literature, poetry, music, film, and performance offer unique insights into both the persistence of trauma and recovery?

Details of the conference, including additional speakers, hotel information, and specific location, will be updated on the website of the Humanities Institute:
