Beyond new wave of mythologization of WWII
In the context of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the CISR e.V. is implementing the project "Beyond new wave of mythologization of WWII". The participants - public intellectuals of the post-soviet generation- will have the opportunity to gather extensive experiences in the comparative analysis of memory politics, rituals, and discourses; furthermore, they will visit memory sites of the Second World War in four countries: Russia, Belarus, Poland, and Germany. The main goal of the project is to create terms and conditions for the sustainable development of a critical approach to the politics of heroization and mythologization of the events of the war.
