THINKING MEMORY THROUGH SPACE: MATERIALITY, REPRESENTATION, & IMAGINATION July 11-12
Room 309 Richard Hoggart Building, Goldsmiths University of London
What does it mean to remember through space? Why is it important, or indeed necessary, to analyze memory and space conjointly? Is it possible to remember without or outside of space? This symposium aims to create a forum in which to discuss, analyze, and critically engage with the topic of post-violence memory and space. Paying close attention to the ways in which particular places and sites of violence are materially experienced, represented, and even imagined, the symposium seeks to literally ‘think memory through space’.
The two-day event will be organized around four central themes in which we will pair invited speakers with early career researchers in order to generate productive discussions about specific research projects and about broader theoretical concerns in analyses of memory.
