Oral history and life story researchers’ group in the UL Institute of Philosophy and Sociology held a conference to seek for new connections between the study of generations, migration and memory. Our aim was to break new ground by revealing the light that each one of our conceptual fields can throw upon the others.
A meeting of Baltic and Nordic researchers took place at the Department of History of Stockholm University - a symposium in which researchers shared their findings about refugees, exiles and emigrants from Latvia in modern times, evaluating the process from the perspective of memory.
From June 25 to 29, four researchers of the project «Narrative perspectives on intergenerational transmission of memory» (finansed by the Latvian Science Council) participated in the 13th Baltic Studies Conference in Europe «Baltic Solidarity», which took place in Gdansk, Poland.
From 28 to 31 May, five participants of the project «Narrative perspectives on intergenerational transmission of memory» (finansed by the Latvian Science Council) visited London, Great Britain, where they took part in the symposium «Amor Narratio: A Symposium on Catherine Riessman's narrative scholarship».
