Memory Studies: New Directions
October 4 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us to discuss two recent collections in Memory Studies and to take stock of new directions in the field. Irene Kacandes, editor of On Being Adjacent to Historical Violence (De Gruyter, 2022), and Brett Kaplan, editor of Critical Memory Studies (Routledge, 2023), will each introduce their volumes and reflect on how the pandemic lock-down inflected the books’ contributions. Contributors Claudia Breger, Leo Spitzer, Marita Sturken, Sonali Thakkar, and James Young will offer brief accounts of key memory studies concepts emerging from their essays. This event is open to the public.
Fliers to order books at a discount are attached, along with the two introductions for seminar members to read in advance. Future meetings this fall will also focus on recent publications in the field. We look forward to our conversations.
