Sites of Memory. Lost and Entangled Narratives

Video Recording: Conference

Memorial to the Sinti and Roma of Europe Murdered under the National Socialist Regime; CC BY-ND 2.0: mini malist

When we talk about Berlin’s collective memory, the stories of many minorities are often overlooked. The final conference of the project "Sites of Memory. Lost and Entangled Narratives" addresses global and local history events and narratives from the perspective of Black Germans, Jews, Sinti and Roma, and other People of Color in their interconnectedness. In his keynote, Michael Rothberg (University of California, Los Angeles) will introduce his multidirectional memory approach and illuminate perspectives on commemorative and memorial cultures. How marginalized stories can be told and made visible will be discussed in the concluding panel discussion.

The conference is organized in cooperation with the Alice Salomon Hochschule Berlin.

Brief Description of the Keynote:
Multidirectional Memory: Entangled Narratives, Implicated Subjects

In his keynote lecture, Michael Rothberg will begin by reflecting on the framework of "sites of memory" that defines the conference. He will review the advantages and disadvantages of the framework as a means of making visible "lost and entangled narratives," and he will offer his theory of "multidirectional memory" as a complementary model for thinking about what happens when different historical legacies intersect in the public sphere. Taking inspiration from the African American intellectual and activist W.E.B. Du Bois, Rothberg will examine an ongoing tradition of remembering one particular multidirectional nexus of memory - the Warsaw Ghetto and the Warsaw Ghetto Monument - in contexts that bring the Nazi genocide of European Jews together with histories of colonialism, slavery, and racism. A final example, taken from an exhibition at the Jewish Museum Berlin, will raise the question of what it means for migrants and minorities to be implicated in national histories of violence and to occupy positions other than that of victim or perpetrator.

Brief Description of Panel 1:
"Urban History in Educational Contexts – on the Relevance of Exploring City History"

Employing interactive methods from the perspective of youths and adults, this panel will introduce participants to the sociopolitical relevance of exploring urban history. We will focus on the method of exploring urban spaces to learn about urban history processes, narratives, and areas that were previously neglected, suppressed, or built up. In two tandem teams, the four speakers will consider how historical interconnections can be drawn upon for practical and political education in an urban context and report on actual experiences from different learning contexts. Exercises in both groups will encourage participants’ active involvement.

Brief Description of Panel 2:
"Author/izing History – Creating New Realities. Working with Marginalized Self-Narratives and Biographies"

Based on various projects in which marginalized life stories play a key role, we will discuss the concept of "author/izing history." We will address key issues that on the one hand take a critical look at unequal speaker positions and, on the other, sound out the oppositional potential of testimonies and biographies: Which functions do individual life stories fulfill in communities and in the context of dominant social relations? Who tells whose story? Why and how? To what extent can life stories create new realities? Of particular interest are potential pitfalls that – depending on the speaker’s position – come to light in the work with marginalized self-narratives and biographies, as well as various areas of tension, which oscillate between collective appreciation and appropriation by the dominant society.
