Event Description : TALK "Conflicts, Post Conflicts and Peoples' Memory" 

Any crisis in any society leaves behind a huge burden of memory and a general mass of people as the main actors/sufferers during the crisis and survivors of the same have to carry this burden on their mind for a long period of time. This is true of the post Nazi period and survivors of the holocaust in Germany, as is true of the post-Civil War Spain, the post dictatorship Latin America or closer home the aftermath of the partition. Society in general and writers, poets, artists, filmmakers in particular negotiate the situation in a special manner. On the other hand in the post-conflict situation the State/Government sets a different agenda. If the peoples’ endeavor is to resist the forgetting, a democratic State that takes over the state power after the crisis aims at having a calm and quiet atmosphere by using such methods as pact of Silence or of forgiving and forgetting.

The series will include talks, discussions and will also look at texts (fiction/nonfiction), films, paintings and other art production  

Series Coordinator: Professor Vibha Maurya who will give an introduction

(Collaboration: Department of Germanic and Romance Studies, University of Delhi)
