Final Conference: Locating and Dislocating Memory

8/29/2016 -

Graduate Training School: 29 Aug-2 Sept, 2016

Conference: 1-3 September, 2016 

The final ISTME conference will focus on the ways in which memory is located and dislocated through processes of production, transmission and reception. Given the dynamism of memory at local, regional and transnational levels, how, when and where is memory located and defined? What are the ethical challenges in these acts of location and definition? What are the ways in which memory is continuously dislocated, via mediation, remediation, consensus-making and conflict? In an age of mass migration, how are memories produced by communities that are themselves dislocated? Is memory the object that is being located or dislocated, or is it a signifier of the location and dislocation of particular memory communities? Is the tension between location and dislocation central to the practice of memory? What new methodological approaches to memory studies can usefully be brought to bear on these questions?
