  Add to Calendar 2019-09-12 14:30 2019-09-13 18:00 Europe/Paris The Audiovisual Heritage of the European Integration Process

The Historical Archives of the European Union, in cooperation with the University of Hamburg, is organizing the conference: ‘The Audio-visual Heritage of the European Integration Process’, which will take place at the European University Institute in Florence from 12 to 13 September 2019.
Since its beginning, the European integration process was accompanied by several information campaigns for Europeans about the new Communities in order to achieve an identification with the idea of a united Europe. In this context, audio-visual media, such as films, photo and slide series, exhibition displays as well as posters played a crucial role. Accordingly, since the early 1950s European institutions, national governments, pro-European movements and private companies produced and disseminated a substantial amount of material.
The conference will address in different panels a range of audio-visual strategies and projects of European institutions to visualize the European integration project and foster the concept of a common European identity, and it will discuss the question of how archives in Europe preserve and make these holdings accessible to research and the public.
At the occasion of the conference, a collection of more than 400 digitized films on European integration collected by the project group “Werben für Europa” coordinated by Prof. Gabriele Clemens at University of Hamburg and deposited recently at the Historical Archives of the European Union will be presented and opened to the public.
