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

There are over 350 individual recordings and films in Warwick on iTunes U and I would like to pick out a few of my favourites.

Welcome to Warwick on iTunes U

Writing about web page http://itunes.warwick.ac.uk

It is with great pleasure that I am able to welcome you to the new Warwick on iTunes U site.

You can access the site at http://itunes.warwick.ac.uk.

What will you find there? A wide variety of materials can be accessed through Warwick on iTunes U - films with leading academics, interviews, presentations and lectures as well as student created resources.

I hope that these films are a point of discovery for you and that they encourage further enquiry and exploration. Certainly at Warwick we are keen that they are the start of a dialogue and I would encourage you to comment on this blog or email us at itunesu@warwick.ac.uk.

I hope to have further opportunities for you to develop your interests with Warwick in the near future, so keep an eye out for those.

Otherwise - I hope you enjoy the initial content and look forward to sharing more of the Warwick experience with you in the future.
