This episode features a discussion with Aline Sierp, an Associate Professor in European Studies at Maastricht University, the co-founder and co-president of the Memory Studies Association, and the Council of European Studies’ Research Network on Transnational Memory and Identity in Europe.

Aline provides us with a broader context of the Contested Histories Onsite project which is a cooperation between Talk Eastern Europe, the Memory Studies Association, and EuroClio: the European Association of History Educators. This project is powered by the European Commission and the Europe4Citizens program.”

Under this project, we published three episodes on different historical sites in Europe, the narratives around them, and the recontextualization that these narratives have undergone. This podcast presents some reflections on the work done under the project and presents some other outcomes that are available to the broader public.
