Call for Proposals: Media and Revisionism
In Serbia’s public discourse, the dominant interpretations on the Yugoslav wars not only ignore or devalue judicially-established facts about crimes committed during the wars, but deny and falsify the facts into distorted narratives. Media work in a context of increasing monopolisation by revisionist memory politics from above. At the same time, media themselves are becoming a crucial instrument in revisionist memory politics.
Humanitarian Law Center (HLC) is hiring a consultant who will write a programmatic paper on the topic “Media and Revisionism”. The paper should identify and analyse revisionist trends in media reports on the wars of the 1990s (on the occasions of anniversaries, important decisions, etc.), and provide tools and resources for an alternative, critical role of media in dealing with the past. Therefore, the HLC is inviting scholars and researchers to submit their paper proposals on the topic “Media and Revisionism”.
All submissions are required to include the applicant’s CV (up to 3 pages) and a paper proposal (up to 300 words). Submissions should be made electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “CfP Media and Revisionism”. The deadline is April 5, 2022. Only successful applicants will be contacted by the HLC.
