Civil War and Historical Memory. Deba 1936-1945

With the help of the Aranzadi Science Society, the City Council of Deba has launched a project of investigation and recovery of the historical memory of the locality.

The study will be based mainly on the knowledge of the human rights violations that occurred during the years 1936-1945, in order to learn from them, to repair them and, as far as possible, to prevent them.

Navigating the Grey Zone: Complicity, Resistance and Solidarity

Call for Applications – Summer School

Navigating the Grey Zone: Complicity, Resistance and Solidarity

University of Edinburgh, 25-27 June 2018


In June 2018 the University of Edinburgh is hosting an interdisciplinary Summer School entitled “Navigating the Grey Zone: Complicity, Resistance and Solidarity.” This event targets PhD students and early career researchers (within 4 years of obtaining their doctorate). We will explore the complexities of complicity in and resistance to systemic human rights violations. Moreover, we will consider the ethical and political value of art for shedding light on the ambiguous reality of political responsibility and fostering relations of political solidarity. The Summer School is part of the interdisciplinary ERC Research Project GREYZONE, and we aim to bring together perspectives from political theory, political science, law, history, sociology, cultural studies, aesthetics and art. The main goal is to give participants the opportunity to interact across disciplinary boundaries with several international experts and to receive critical feedback on their own projects. The Summer School will involve extended scholarly discussions as well as social activities, allowing the participants to exchange ideas and initiate academic collaborations in a friendly environment. Participants will include a diverse mix of senior and junior scholars, PhD students and artists, who will work together on problematising the many faces of complicity, resistance and solidarity.


List of Confirmed Speakers:

  • Danielle Celermajer, Sociology, University of Sydney
  • Vikki Bell, Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London
  • Margaret Atack, French, University of Leeds
  • Paul Gready, Centre for Applied Human Rights, University of York
  • Bronwyn Leebaw, Political Science, University of California
  • Cynthia Milton, History, University of Montreal

The programme will feature morning lectures by expert speakers, followed by presentations from participants in the afternoon. Our speakers will attend and comment on the afternoon presentations. To facilitate productive discussions, all participants are expected to read the assigned readings for each morning session and to share their papers at least one week before the Summer School starts.


We invite papers that examine the following issues:


  • Conceptualisations of complicity, resistance and solidarity in relation to systemic political violence;
  • The grey zone as a challenge to political memory, identity, and history;
  • The epistemic, moral and political value of artistic engagements with painful pasts;
  • Broader theoretical and practical challenges raised by the complexities of complicity, including issues of moral, political and legal judgement and agency, guilt and responsibility, forgiveness and revenge, justice and reconciliation;
  • The relationship between state-sponsored and artistic engagements with the grey zones of complicity and resistance;
  • The value and effects of artworks on public debates about/institutional responses to past violence;
  • Ethical and political dilemmas regarding the status of truth, the possibility of representation and the value of testimony in relation to the grey zones of political violence.

We encourage applications from various disciplinary backgrounds, including philosophy, political, social and legal theory, history, political science, cultural studies and aesthetics. We welcome contributions from normative, historical, conceptual, case-based and comparative perspectives.
