Remembering and Coexisting in the Eastern Mediterranean
Welcome to Rem-Em, the digital platform for scholars and practitioners interested in Historical Trauma, Human Rights and Pluralism in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Rem-Em is the digital platform of the project Rememberings: Human Rights, Historical Trauma and the Future of Pluralism in Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean, hosted by the Swedish Institute in Istanbul and funded by the Swedish Institute.
Our aim is to foster increased exchange and collaboration between academia and civil society in the fields of Human Rights and Historical Trauma in the Eastern Mediterranean.
Remembering and Coexisting in Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean
This summer school offers a unique opportunity for young scholars, advanced students and civil society activists to deepen their knowledge on pluralism, historical trauma and human rights in Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean. The aim is to engage in conceptual discussions, to advance methodological skills, and to develop a network with leading scholars and civil society organizations active in these fields.
Participants and lecturers will discuss what cultural pluralism has meant in the past and what it means today and survey how Turkey and other Eastern Mediterranean countries have struggled to either sustain or suppress cultural pluralism and pluralist heritage and how these developments relate to the emergence of human rights discourses. Special attention is given to oral history as a methodology to approach these topics and to the dynamics between academia and civil society in the advancement of these themes in the public sphere.

Unspoken Memories, Unwritten Histories
Eastern Mediterranean pluralism in oral history and memory studies
A series of workshops devoted to theories and practices in academia and civil society in Turkey and beyond
Operates at a cross-section of academic research and civil society activism. It aims to bring together young scholars of history, minorities and human rights with representatives of academia and civil society in a number of Eastern Mediterranean cities outside of Turkey. The panels discuss what cultural pluralism meant in the past and what it means today, survey how different Eastern Mediterranean countries have struggled to either sustain or suppress cultural pluralism and pluralist heritage, and debate what academics can learn from civil society organizations and human rights discourses when they deal with the questions it brings up.
