Mechanisms for Formation of Cultural Exclusion and Frontier Zones (CEFZ)-2020

There are two sides to the formation of cultural memory. The first one is a memorial zone. The second, a more extensive one, is a zone of oblivion, of that which has been excluded from ordinary cultural practices but still shapes cultural borderlines and defines processes of identification. Such zones of oblivion, of expelled cultural experience have been named Cultural Exclusion and Frontier Zones (suggesting an analogy with technological disaster areas, such as the Chernobyl and Fukushima Exclusion Zones).

The main objective of the Conference is to reveal and conceptualize the methods and terminology involved in the study of mechanisms underlying the formation of cultural exclusion and frontier zones. The research team associated with this project, taking into consideration as it does the multi-factor influences on the content of culture, has come to regard the interaction of cultures as involving not only border zones (marginal ones, containing elements of two or more interacting cultures) but also exclusion zones, i.e. zones of cultural exclusion, the relevance of which for interacting cultures is questionable.

This year, in addition to the more traditional issues, we also welcome papers written from a specific perspective which may be defined as “Biology of boundaries and a Pandemic of restrictions”. Participants can write on biopolitics, phantom borders (especially with reference to animals and microorganisms), bio-geo-politics (A. Makarychev), anatomy of limits, the boundaries and borders of the (collective) body, cultural isolation, the care of the self (le souci de soi) as the care of the impermeability of borders, anthropology of borders, the virus of memory, a pandemic of the past, memorial immunity, migration, biology of comfort and the limits of comfort, biology of the trans-generational relations.
