Memory Studies

Memory 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. This FIG brings together faculty from across disciplines who are working on or interested in memory to explore memory in an interdisciplinary way. The activities of the FIG include a reading group, presentations of faculty research, and other programs determined by interest.
