Call for Papers

The research on History, made by authors such as Benjamin and Foucault, sustain a
counter-discourse and counter-narrative way of thinking that aims to embrace the voices of those who
have been voted to silence by the hegemonic powers of society, asserting themselves as
counter-memory. The practices of memory are thus fields of political action where various agents
interact in relationships of power that seek to give visibility to memory, against forgetfulness,
marginalization and subjugation. The productions of memory and forgetfulness are not passive acts,
but denote conflicts and tensions between different modes of knowledge. We seek to highlight the
different perspectives and multiplicities of discourses that converge in the formation of memory
guided by heterogeneity and plurality.

From this theoretical and interpretive framework appeared new models of organization and
re-activation of memory; discussions on the interactions between individual / collective identities;
postcolonial perspectives; gender policies; marginal / peripheral discourses gained dimension.

We invite academics, students and independent researchers to think the photographic and
filmic image as “a place where recollection - memory – materializes” (Bergson, 1896) and real and
fiction intersect (Dubois, 2016) affirming their power to transgress and open other narrative and visual
paths. The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited to:
- counter-hegemonic narratives;
- temporal densities of/in images;
- archive dynamics in relation to counter-power and counter-memory;
- self-representation between fiction and reality;
- political and sociohistorical dimensions of authorship;
- artistic practices as resistance strategies;
- the use of vernacular images and processes in artistic production.
