Memory as Medium: Experience, Exchange, Representation

Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada

March 13 & 14, 2008

 

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Marita Sturken
( Professor, Department of Media, Culture and Communication, Co-Director of the Visual Culture Program , New York University Steinhardt)

 

3rd Annual Conference of the Communication Graduate Caucus,
School of Journalism and Communication, Carleton University

Memory has become an increasingly rich concept in the study of culture across various academic fields. It is being used to investigate the contradictory relationship between individual and collective experiences, public and private exchanges of meaning, and politics of representation. Traditionally, the study of cultural memory examines the practices of remembering and forgetting associated with historical events both traumatic and celebratory. Scholars from various areas of study investigate topics such as wars, genocides, commemorations and festivals. More recently, cultural memory has been linked to issues of identity, the role of technology and the importance of the sensorium.

We invite both graduate students and faculty members to submit papers which explore the relationship between memory and culture. The goal of this conference is to question the paradigms and practices associated with the study of memory. We hope to explore and challenge existing discourses by opening up new areas of inquiry. Our exploration is guided by, but not limited to the following questions: What does it mean to remember and/or to forget? What is the relationship between personal and collective memory? How do we remember as a culture? In what way(s) is memory a political concept? How does memory allow us to examine issues of exclusion and inclusion? Why it is important to study memory?

We invite papers from a broad range of interdisciplinary perspectives to explore and contest the following themes:

•  Collective remembrance
•  Memory and media: preservation and recirculation
•  Citizenship, nationality, globalization
•  Questions of identity and resistance
•  The role of the senses in collecting and constructing memories
•  Artistic and/or technological practices of making, capturing and preserving memories
•  Facing the ghosts of the past: the memory of traumatic events
•  Inventions of colonialism and decolonization
•  Representations of history through nostalgia and kitsch
