Round table (Webinar)
Description of activity:
To participate in the round table, which will be carried out in English, we will invite experts of the field from the region of the Northern Adriatic and beyond. This would also be the opportunity to evaluate the commemorations of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, and raise the issues of traumatic experiences during the war, remembrance, oblivion and ignorance. Collected research material and project deliverables (by then already completed touring exhibition) will be used as a case study and a starting point. We will include in discussion the local students, historians and other experts, and via internet the affiliated European universities, who will follow the round table streaming live.
Round table will be carried out as a webinar, so that the students and other interested public will be able to watch the event streaming live and could participate in the debate. The webinar will later be available to the public at the project’s website, plus we will promote it regionally, nationally (in Slovenia, Italy and Croatia) and in all European dimension, to attract attention of researchers, teachers, journalists, NGO’s and others. The result would be enhanced professional network.
