April 28-30, 2011
As a forum for the examination of the representation and redefinition of memory, history, nostalgia and trauma in literature and film, this conference highlights the degree to which either individual or social memory is legitimized and naturalized through narrative or visual media forms. Presenters from all over the world explore literature and cinema as veritable modes of memory, in the shape of allusion, adaptation, remediation, translation, intertextuality, and appropriation: culture itself as a global memory system.
Featured Speakers include:
