Memory & Representation

Primary tabs

 

This area concerns the relationship between memory and the various means of representation that construct, preserve, and convey the past. In this context, memory refers to the way in which the past continues to survive in the present, implicitly and explicitly, and is transmitted into the future. The diverse means of representation – whether in the form of literature, cinema, photography, or visual culture at large, including television and digital media – have an essential role in keeping memory alive, in both structuring and transforming it. Against this backdrop, this area welcomes individual and session proposals that address the themes, concepts, or historical perspectives related to the intersection of memory, representation, and culture generally.

 

 

SUBMISSION

 

For individual papers in Memory and Representation, you are invited to submit a 200-300 word abstract or proposal online.

 

Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with three or four papers or speakers per standard session. Should you or any of your colleagues be interested in submitting a session proposal or have any questions, please send inquires by email to [email protected].
