Deadline: 31 August 2013
Open to: international candidates interested in the topics of the conference
Venue: 2-3 October 2014 in Warsaw, Poland
The Institute of National Remembrance’s Public Education Office and Branch Public Education Office in Warsaw launched a call for papers for its 2014 International Scientific Conference titled “Guilt and punishment. Societies towards settlement of the crimes committed by totalitarian regimes in the years 1939-1956”. The conference will take place from 2-3 October 2014 in Warsaw, Poland. The main aim of the conference is to establish the characteristics of the settlement of crimes committed by the Nazi Reich and the Soviet Union. In comparison, it would be tempting to signal the settlement of the military past of the regimes, which were closer to authoritarianism than totalitarianism like Japan and Italy. Implementation of these issues will require an interdisciplinary approach, possible by the completion of an international team of researchers of various specialties: historians, political scientists, sociologists, and anthropologists. The conference will include four modules:
- Shadow of the war: The Reich
- Shadow of the war: The USSR
- Shadow of the war: Dictatorships
- The shadow of communism (1945-1956)
International candidates interested in the topics of the conference.
All interested persons are welcome to attend the conference – both as speakers or participants. The organizers will cover accommodation costs (hotel and meals) of the authors of the papers and refund the cost of their trip.
Applicants should submit the application form together with an abstract of the paper (500-700 words) in Polish or English and a copy of one published scientific text (up to 6000 words with footnotes), or a website address if the article is available online. All documents should be sent by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by regular mail to:
