What do you expect from this conference? What is your personal approach to “European commemoration”? These questions were asked to several participants of the European Commemoration conference. The answers are as diverse as the participants were.
Professor Heidemarie Uhl (Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna) discusses commemoration from an academic point of view. In her role as chairwoman of the workshop panel “Science” she points out major issues in commemoration-related scholarship and cross-border commemoration in general.
