We invite you to “Counter(f)actual strategies in history writings, literature, and arts” – a workshop session in the framework of a scientific project in cooperation with the Institute of Polish Culture.
Do we remember and forget differently as individuals than as collectives? What are the reasons behind the growing interest in alternative versions of distant and recent past in popular culture, arts and sciences? Is there any cognitive value in what-if thinking? Such questions, among many others, will be addressed during the two-day workshop Counter(f)actual Strategies in History Writings, Literature, and Arts” (16-17.11.2017), organized by the Chair for Performativity Studies at the Jagiellonian University. The workshop will combine academic papers with contributions from artists.
Event taking place in room 42, Faculty for Polish Studies of the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, ul. Gołębia 16.
All presentations in English
