Thu, Oct 30, '14
3:30pm - 5pm
The Memory Group, part of Warwick's European History Research Centre and organized for graduate students and staff across the university, will hold its first meeting of this term on October 30th, 3:30-5:00 pm, with a discussion of readings with Milija Gluhovic and Yvette Hutchinson (Theatre Studies, Warwick). All are welcome!
All graduate students in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences are invited to participate in the Memory Group. Memory studies has been a rapidly developing field that has brought together scholars in History, Literature, Sociology, Media and Cultural Studies and a wide range of other disciplines over the last 20 years. It is an empirically rich and theoretically challenging field that has implications for methodology and the way in which sources and data are understood across the board in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. The Memory Group is an interdisciplinary group of graduate students and faculty with research interests in memory, memorialisation, and related issues of trauma and nostalgia. The group aims to meet termly with meetings involving discussion of published (both recent and older) and unpublished work and formal presentations from experts in the field.
Please note: There is a seminar on Thurs 16 October at 4pm with Carla Guelfenbein, an exile from the Pinochet coup in 1973 who will discuss writing and silence with Thomas Glave, a writer an gay rights activist from Jamaica. Also the Argentine film on the disappeared on Wed 22 October, at 6.15 in the Arts Centre, followed by Q&A with the director. This film has been re-released after 20 years and stars Vanessa Redgrave. Tickets are free: email M.Coletta@warwick.ac.uk. The film will be relevant for anyone coming later to the seminar by Alison and Loredana.
The Memory Group is planning five meetings this year. There will be two in Term 1
The third meeting in January (tbc) will look at Memory and Music - with papers and discussion of the interaction between music and memory and memorialisation.
The fourth meeting in February /March will involve graduate students discussing their own work and its relation to the study of memory and memorialisation; and the last on May 15 will be a public workshop with Astrid Erll, Professor of English Literature and Culture at the University of Wuppertal, Germany, and editor with Ansgar Nünning of A Companion to Cultural Memory Studies (de Gruyter, 2010).
