This year’s School of Arts and Humanities postgraduate conference seeks to explore the broad theme of cultural memory from a variety of perspectives. It invites contributions on any aspect of this theme from across the Arts and Humanities community. Proposals from Masters and Research Postgraduate Students are equally welcome. We are also keen to hear from practitioners who could provide a creative response to the theme.

The conference seeks to explore key questions relating to the broad theme of memory, such as:

– How can we historicise memory?

– How do digital forms of record keeping impact on cultural memory?

– How is cultural memory constructed and mediated through art and language?

Topics may include (but are in no way limited to):

  •  Community memory
  •  Constructing cultural narratives
  •  Cultural memory and mass media
  •  Cultural memory in translation
  •  Cultural memory of language
  •  Evidence and testimony
  •  Folklore and storytelling
  •  Memory as an historical problem
  •  Memory, media and cultural mediation
  •  Myth and identity
  •  Oral history
  •  Remembrance and tradition
  •  Theories of memory
  •  Trauma and mass atrocities

Please submit proposals of c. 250 words by Monday the 30th of March 2015 to the Organising Committee at ahpgconf@stir.ac.uk with “conference 2015 abstract” in the subject line. The conference will take place on the 30th of May, 2015 at the University of Stirling.
