August 31: Deadline – Call for Papers, DC History Conference
August 31, 2020
The 2020 DC History Conference theme is “Echoes.” This year’s conference will be fully virtual and re-formatted as a symposium-style virtual conference.
The conference theme is grounded in Toni Morrison’s call toward rememory, asking: How do memory and history echo through time? In a year of disruption, upheaval, loss, war, pandemic, and protest echoes of past years of turmoil resonate. If we are to talk about time, place, and the state of the world as Toni Morrison suggests we should, what might our “rememory” direct us to examine, deconstruct, or revisit? How do moments and eras in history stretch our understandings of memory?
