Conference on "Contesting Memorial Spaces in the Asia-Pacific"

On November 6-7, Kyushu University Border Studies will host an international conference on 'Contesting Memorial Spaces in the Asia-Pacific'.

Across the two days, the conference features eight panels examining the temporality and territoriality of memory, explorations of official and marginalized memorials, new spaces of mnemonic performance, and national and transnational memorial networks. It will also host two plenary roundtables, discussing tangible and intangible heritage practices, and the affective power of territorial disputes.
