Conference 'Digital Testimonies on War and Trauma (DTWT2013) June
12-14, 2013 Erasmus Studio for e-research / Erasmus Universiteit
Rotterdam, The Netherlands

To mark the completion of the video-life stories project Croatian
Memories (CroMe) created in cooperation with the Croatian NGO
Documenta, the Erasmus Studio for e-research will host the
international multidisciplinary conference 'Digital Testimonies
on War and Trauma' at the Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam, The
Netherlands, from 12-14 June 2013.

The Call for Papers for this conference was closed on 1 February
2013. The selected papers can be found on the conference
Programme page, and researchers and practitioners from the
domains of oral history, archives and ICT are now invited to
participate and to sign up on the Registration page.


The conference aims to bring together scholars involved in the
creation of digital oral history sources, for both research and
archival purposes, with the intent to discuss the potential use
and impact of digitized narratives related to war and trauma,
across disciplinary and national boundaries. Because of the
specific regional context in which the CroMe project has been
conducted, part of the programme will focus on the role and use
of oral history in the former Yugoslavia. Another strong focus
will be on new insights with regard to the challenges of creating
and opening up digital oral history archives in the digital era.
