Workshop on Media and Tertiary Memory

Saturday, October 7, 2017,

Global & International Studies Building

This workshop will bring together scholars working across the humanities to reflect upon the relationship between technologies and individual and cultural retention. This initiative comes in response to the incredible capacity of digital media technologies to store individual and collective memories on individual devices and virtually “in the clouds.” Such capabilities raise important new questions about the spatial and temporal components of memory and their impact on a range of different practices. To aid in this effort, this workshop will welcome ten scholars from various disciplines and countries whose work will provide a series of concepts and case studies that will spark reflection on the relationship between memory and a range of creative, cognitive, and cultural practices.

This event is free and open to the public. Please contact Vincent Bouchard (French & Italian) for more information.
