After the storm. The year 1812 in the historical memory of Russia and Europe

The Napoleonic epos has often been compared to a storm: if 1812 was the period "Before the storm" for Theodor Fontane, the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin referred to the same year as the actual "storm of 1812". On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the invasion of Russia by Napoleon's Grande Armée, this international conference will discuss the aftershocks the upheaval of 1812 caused and the deep marks it left in historical memory.

Four sections are planned:

  1. The politics of memory in transition
  2. The agents and practices of memory
  3. Medialization and historical memory (architecture, painting, music, literature, cinema, Internet, etc.);
  4. Cultures of remembrance relating to 1812 in an imperial and comparative context.

The conference will be held in Moscow from 28 -30 May 2012 in the rooms of the German Historical Institute (DHI). The Institute will pay the travel expenses of conference participants and provide accommodation. Please contact either Dr. Denis Sdvizhkov (denis.sdvizkov@dhi-moskau.org) or PD Dr. Guido Hausmann
(guido.hausmann@geschichte.uni-freiburg.de) with any lecture proposals you may have by 31 January 2012.
