Open to UIUC graduate students in all disciplines
Friday, March 9, 2018, 9am-3pm IPRH, 422 Levis (919 W. Illinois)
We hope that this symposium will showcase the diverse and wonderful work within memory studies (broadly conceived) that students are doing here. It will be an opportunity to share ideas and resources, to schmooze and connect. This will also be a great time to practice conference papers and receive invaluable feedback from faculty and other graduate students.
We invite applications from graduate students working in different fields and with diverse interests across the UIUC campus. These aspects of memory studies might include (but are not limited to): racial aspects of memory, neuroscience, disability studies, how societies remember, the construction of national narratives, cultural and/or religious practices of memory, museums, archiving, representation and art, sciences of memory (or science and memory), technological aspects of memory, politics of memory, forgetting, erasing, and oversaturating.
Please send a brief abstract (not more than 200 words) that includes the title of your paper, your email, and your department to the director, Professor Brett Ashley Kaplan at email@example.com by 1 February, 2018.
