18 November, 3–5pm (GMT)
Seminar of Cultural Memory: Mediated Memory of Responsibility
The Mediated Memory of Responsibility seminars, organized by Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory (School of Advanced Study, University of London) will bring together scholars working on the cultural representation of the violent past of the twentieth century across a variety of media and cultures.
The seminar series aims to examine the contribution of cultural products to exposing the crimes of the perpetrators and disseminating a sense of responsibility for the past in relation to events such as colonialism, wars, and dictatorships. Interdisciplinary in nature, the seminars will explore the theme of responsibility across textual and visual media and in various national contexts, leading to fruitful cross-fertilisations and the possibility of future cooperation among scholars working within different disciplines.
Speakers taking part in the first seminar held on 14 November 2020 include Professor Max Silverman (Leeds), Professor Hanna Meretoja (Turku), and Professor Donald Bloxham (Edinburgh).
All are welcome to attend this free event. Places are limited so please register in advance online. Registration is open here.
