There are two aspects of the formation of cultural memory. The first one is memorial zone. The second is the zone of oblivion and experience excepted from ordinary cultural practice; it is more important as it involves more cultural phenomena. Like some inconvenient historical figure or uncomfortable historical event this cultural experience is excepted but not completely forgotten. It shapes cultural borderlines and defines processes of identification. Such zones of excepted but unforgotten cultural experience were named Cultural Exclusion and Frontier  Zones (on the analogy with the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone).

The main objectives of the Conference: To reveal the mechanisms for formation of cultural exclusion zones on the example of the totalitarian Soviet past. Though topographical representation of national culture is nowadays quite common in the field of the Humanities (the methods of exposing of geographical boarders of national cultures are drawn up, theories of “cultural boarders” are elaborated and imagology is actively developing), borderline is usually regarded as a characteristic of some territory possessing distinct outlines. The research group brought together by this project takes into consideration multifactor influence upon the contents of culture and sees in interaction of different cultures not only frontier zones (marginal and containing elements of two and more interacting cultures) but also exclusion zones, i. e. zones of cultural suppression whose importance for interacting cultures becomes rather questionable.

Round Table «”Images of Italy” in Global Art Culture. Domains of cultural exclusion»

«Images of Italy» in global art culture provide a unique «cultural» code – characteristic patterns in the collective national consciousness of many different peoples across the world. In the view of Peter Burke, the «cultural» history of humanity creates a setting for the study of cultures as «totalities», and relates to the «cultural revolution» that has emerged of late in all humanitarian sciences. The crucial concept for the study of cultural history is the image. Social ontology considers the image in the capacity of a representative phenomenon.

 

 But as well as being a phenomenon of representation, the image is also the marker for the socio-cultural borders of the Event in both art and history. In cultural history, an event may be banished to the periphery, and it may just as easily be re-actualized later; borrowed back from the edge of history in order that the excluded image may be returned to us. As a rule, the territories of estrangement are of less interest to researchers than the events of actual culture, or those cultural events that are grandiosely preserved by the history of that culture, but they are there nonetheless.

 

Topics for discussion at the Round Table:

 

1. The multiplicity of "images of Italy". Methodological difficulties. Stereotyping of social reality.

 

2. Imaginary as a process of production of images and the Italian context of world culture.
