Memories about violence and injustice are multiple, struggled over and often very different from official narratives of the past that circulate in history books and classrooms. Memory can also be productive and pedagogical, offering potential to intervene in educational spaces and to challenge or shape transitional justice processes.
With a focus on social movements, gender, memory production by those affected by violent conflict, the relationship between history and memory, transitional justice and the pedagogical possibilities of memory, the panellists share their experiences, research and questions about memory.
EdJAM is a collaborative international network of researchers, educators and civil society organisations working in the arts, education and heritage. We are committed to creative ways to teach and learn about the violent past in order to build more just futures. EdJAM is a UKRI GCRF funded Network Plus.
Sharing perspectives from the EdJAM team, Advisory Board and esteemed guests, these events explore the key concepts on which EdJAM is based, the connections between them and the possibilities for teaching and learning about violence and injustice that they open. These events are also an opportunity to find out more about research funding opportunities available through EdJAM.

EdJAM will commission research into creative practices for teaching and learning about the violent past. We will fund projects led by researchers, civil society organisations, artists and activists, with a focus on research led by colleagues based in the global south, early career researchers and/or researchers from groups that are traditionally under-represented in academia. In this session, we will share information about the process of applying for funding, the areas of focus, and tips on preparing applications.
