March 30, 2015

This year’s School of Arts & Humanities postgraduate conference seeks to explore the broad theme of cultural memory from a variety of perspectives. It invites contributions on any aspect of this theme from across the Arts & Humanities community. Proposals from Masters & Research Postgraduate Students are equally welcome.

  • Community memory
  • Constructing cultural narratives

  • Cultural memory of language
  • Evidence & testimony
  • Folklore & storytelling
  • Memory as an historical problem
  • Memory, media & cultural mediation
  • Myth & identity
  • Oral history
  • Remembrance & tradition
  • Theories of memory
  • Trauma & mass atrocities.

Please submit proposals of c. 250 words by Monday 30th of March 2015 to the Organising Committee at ahpgconf@stir.ac.uk with “Conference 2015 Abstract” in the subject line.
