Event description:

Memory is a major theme in contemporary life, a key to personal, social and cultural identity. Scholars have studied the concept from different perspectives and within different disciplines: philosophy, sociology, anthropology, geography, architecture, urban design, and the interdisciplinary "place studies". According to Pierre Nora, places of memory or lieux de m√©moire refer to those places where "memory crystallizes and secretes itself"; the places where the exhausted capital of collective memory condenses and is expressed. To be considered as such, these sites must be definable in the three senses of the word: material, symbolical and functional, all in different degrees but always present. What makes them a memory site is the interplay of memory and history, the interaction of both factors, which allows their reciprocal over-determination. "The Place of Memory and the Memory of Place" International¬†Conference aims to spark new conversations across the field of memory and place studies.¬† Paper proposals up to 250 words should be sent to: [email protected].
