This one-day conference provides a space for an interdisciplinary analysis of themes related to spaces of remembering and forgetting for postgraduate and early career researchers.
The aim of this conference is to widen the traditional understanding of memory through exploration of literal and figurative spaces of remembering and forgetting. Held at the University of Bristol - in partnership with the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership - the conference will bring together scholars working in disciplines including History, English, Modern Languages, Performing Arts, Archaeology, Architecture and Geography, among others.
Participants will benefit from an interactive roundtable on oral history and co-creation in the community. Prof. Josie McLellan, Prof. Tim Cole, Prof. John Foot and Dr Grace Huxford from the University of Bristol will discuss projects including the history of LGBT+ Bristol, an oral history of the University of Warwick since 1965, building communities in care homes through life histories, and the documentary Ringhiera: Story of a House.
A keynote lecture on memory will be given by Dr Juliette Pattinson, Head of the School of History at the University of Kent. Dr Pattinson is currently writing a book on men in reserved occupations in WWII, and sits on the editorial board for Women’s History Review.
A lunchtime poster session will be an opportunity for researchers wishing to present their work in a more informal and interactive setting. There will also be a film screening relating to memory to be held in Bristol on the evening of Thursday 11 May.
The conference is generously supported by the SWWDTP Cohort Development Fund. Spaces of Remembering and Forgetting is organised by the SWW DTP Memory Studies Cluster.
