The international conference Memories in motion: transnational and migratory perspectives in memory processes was held on June 4-5, 2018 at the Stockholm University. The conference sought to explore the ways in which several contemporary cultures face their violent or colonial past through the production of all types of cultural products. Memory plays a fundamental role in this regard, since its high degree of reflexivity leads to the encounter with the past and provides interpretations of events that can facilitate processes of recognition, justice or reconciliation. Moreover, the congress also focused on the relation between memory and migratory processes in the configuration of local memories, especially in countries with high reception of immigration. The congress was the third organized by Red Internacional de Investigación y Aprendizaje “Memoria y Narración”.
Katia Olalde presented the paper Embodied memory and digital media in the global protests against the ‘War on Drugs’ in Mexico.
Martín Zícari delivered the paper ‘Comité Eureka: historia y testimonio de la lucha contra la desaparición forzada en México. 1977-2017’.
Fabiola Navarro presented “Reportando la violencia en los medios alternativos. El costo de estar en las noticias” in the session of “Memories across identities, media and disciplines”.
