How (and why) to Measure Conflicts of Memory?

From the book Instrumentalizing the Past

  • Łukasz Kamiński


Conflicts of memory are a growing problem in the contemporary world. While research of historical ones is developing steadily, a tool that can monitor current ones in nearly real time is needed to efficiently help with political decisions. This article presents possible methods for creating such a tool by presenting examples of indicators (state policy, social stances, media presence, acts of violence, representation in culture, third party engagement) and a sample mathematical model which could be used in a neural network or another similar algorithm. Possible technical solutions and problems to be solved are also discussed
