After the Crisis: Remembrance Re-anchoring & Recovery in the Ancient World - 15-16-17/12/2016, G

Crises resulting from war or natural disasters turn the life of individuals upside down, and they can leave marks on a community for many years after the event. The After the Crisis conference will explore how such crises are remembered, and how communities reconstitute themselves after a crisis. Can crises serve as catalysts for innovation or change, and how does this work? Finally, what do crises reveal about the accepted state of order against which they are defined and framed?
