1. NORDISK SOMMARSKOLA I KUNSKAPSHISTORIA
I augusti förra året arrangerade Centrum för kunskapshistoria (LUCK) en nordisk sommarskola för doktorander och nydisputerade. Trots pandemin lyckades vi samla ett femtontal yngre forskare från olika ämnen och lärosäten till några intensiva dagar av intellektuellt utbyte i Lund.

Den 23–26 augusti 2021 är det dags igen. Med Anton Jansson som koordinator kommer vi att anordna en andra omgång av den kunskapshistoriska sommarskolan. För mer information, se https://www.luck.lu.se/kurser/sommarskola

Centrum för kunskapshistoria har i dagarna fått en ny hemsida: https://www.luck.lu.se. Det är en ganska avskalad sida, knuten till Lunds universitet, som innehåller väsentlig basinformation om oss. För en mer levande sida med frekventa uppdateringar hänvisar vi till vår digitala plattform: https://newhistoryofknowledge.com

2. LEKTORAT: CONTEMPORARY HISTORY OF PEDAGOGICAL INSTITUTIONS AND EDUCATIONAL CONCEPTS, KU LEUVEN
There is a full-time academic vacancy in the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of KU Leuven (Belgium), in the research unit Education, Culture and Society. The position consists of academic teaching, research, and services to the community. Candidates are expected to have an excellent or promising research profile, and excellent and demonstrated teaching skills in the domain of Contemporary history of pedagogical institutions and educational concepts.

The domain focuses on research into the contemporary history of educational practices in their relationship with pedagogical institutions and educational concepts. Educational practices, or learning and training practices, not only concern behavioral change, but also imply culture formation and renewal. Research into the social/cultural-historical context in which these practices arise and evolve is necessary for a good understanding of the practical and institutional design of these practices, as well as of the (pedagogical) concepts and theories that underlie them. The research pays particular attention to the historical impact of radical social evolutions – in the field of diversity, technology, and views on science and professionalism – on educational practices.

Candidates are expected to have a PhD in Educational Sciences or in a related discipline of the humanities, provided that the candidate has relevant research experience in the field of history of education. Applicants are expected to have an excellent research track record, as evidenced by publications in international peer-reviewed journals and books published by international recognized publishing houses within the domain of the history of education.

The official language used at KU Leuven is Dutch. If you do not speak Dutch (or do not speak it well) at the start of employment, KU Leuven will provide language training to enable you to take part in meetings. Before teaching courses in Dutch or English, you will be given the opportunity to learn Dutch, respectively English, to the required standard.

Deadline: March 01, 2021

3. CfP: SPINNING THE STICKY THREADS OF CHILDHOOD MEMORIES
We are excited to invite researchers, artists, professionals, and activists to our conference, Spinning the Sticky Threads of Childhood Memories: From Cold War to Anthropocene, which will take place on October 20-21, 2021!

In the words of Donna Haraway (2019, 565), “stories nest like Russian dolls inside ever more stories and ramify like fungal webs throwing out ever more sticky threads.” We are inspired by this provocation precisely 30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, amidst both (re)emerging political divides and the growing awareness of our interdependence with other human beings and the more-than-human world in the face of the Anthropocene. The conference invites researchers, artists, professionals, and activists to probe the “fungal webs” and spin the “sticky threads” of childhood, remembering/forgetting, and childhood memories, to use memory as “a tool with which to think” (Bowker 2005, 15) about the past, present, and future. Memory is a productive process as it entangles in events and generates new events (Fox and Alldred 2019, 25). Memories can materially affect bodies, things, identities, and social processes, as they connect past and present events across time and space, producing both continuities and change.

Abstract submission NOW OPEN (deadline May, 2021) https://events.tuni.fi/recollectreconnect2021/abstract-submission/

Our conference uses Decentered Satellite Conferencing to reduce environmental impact and work toward more equal engagements. Participants will connect virtually & regionally at five regional hubs and online: Tampere/Finland, Atlanta/USA, Berlin/Germany, Hajdúböszörmény/Hungary, Africa Online. Each hub is organized thematically around its own local call for participation that connects, contextualizes and adds new directions to engage with the conference’s broader theme. Please visit the hub specific pages to explore the local calls for papers. The conference programme of the Africa Online hub will span the period of October 11-22 and of the Berlin online and onsite hub will take place on October 20-22. For more info on the hubs, see https://events.tuni.fi/recollectreconnect2021/

The conference is organized by Reconnect Recollect – a collaborative, international and interdisciplinary project that creates dialogues among people divided by multiple borders – geopolitical, economic, generational and cultural – inherited from and reordered after the Cold War. Bridging academic research and art, the project (re)collects memories of diverse childhood experiences during the Cold War, bringing into public view alternative and multiple personal histories that have the potential to transfigure divisions into connections in new and bold ways.
