Last month i gave a presentation at the symposium Minne, makt, moral: Historia i samtidsperspektiv, Linköping University. I talked about Mary and Memoria, Martin Wiklund about “The justice and injustice of Memory”,  Claudia Lindén, “The Ghost as feminist allied: about the Construction of time and history in contemporary feminist theory”,  and finally author Anna-Karin Palm talked about “Memory is a narrative.”

The symposium, organised by Kristina Fjelkstam turned out to be very interesting and I truly enjoyed listening to the other presentations.
