Memory Studies

Memory Studies examines the social, cultural, cognitive, political and technological shifts affecting how, what and why individuals, groups and societies remember, and forget.

Despite the epistemological and causal significance attributed to memory in the study of such questions as the formation of personal and public identity, culture and politics, and social communities, there remains dramatic divergence on the basic concepts and methods of the area.

The field mobilises scholarship driven by problem or topic, rather than by singular method or tradition.

Dr Andrew Hoskins recently chaired a day of workshops to mark the launch of Warwick's Centre for Memory Studies. These are now available on Warwick on iTunes U
