MEMORY: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY DISCUSSION

Page Delano (English), Alex d’Erizans (History), Marjan Persuh (Psychology), Amy Sodaro (Sociology),

Jill Strauss (Peace and Conflict Studies)

 

Memory is a concept that is at once deeply familiar and notoriously difficult to affix meaning to. It is an integral part of everyday life, but also increasingly both the subject of academic research and a conceptual lens used across disciplines. Debates abound between and within academic fields about the nature of memory and in response to the interest within and beyond the academy, a dedicated field of memory studies has emerged. Please join us for an interdisciplinary discussion of the uses – and abuses – of the concept of memory across the disciplines.

 

Organized by Marjan Persuh and Amy Sodaro (Department of Social Sciences, Human Services and Criminal Justice).

 

Wednesday May 13, 1 -2
