'Cultural Memory has emerged as a useful umbrella term to describe the complex ways in which societies remember their past. It has become increasingly apparent that the memories that are shared within generations and across different generations are the product of public acts of remembrance using a variety of media. Stories, both oral and written, images, museums, monuments: these all work together in creating and sustaining 'sites of memory'. (Astrid Erll and Ann Rigney, 2006)
On the other hand, remembrance and amnesia are key parts of the mechanisms of the human mind or mysterious ways of the complex activity of the psyche. One can easily argue that works of literature, which have focused the memory of the individual in subjective ways, are sufficient in number and quality to compose a genre in its own. (Jonathan Lethem, 2000)The conference aims to provide a platform for discussions and research, which consider various aspects of literature as a memorial medium to contribute to the larger discussion of the ways in which societies recollect their past and as a field of observation of personal memory to explore and experience the complexities of the mind and emotions.
Scholars from difference fieds such as political science, history, sociology, anthropology, gender studies, urban studies, architecture, literature, poetry, art history, life sciences and other fields are welcomed to propose their interdisciplinary work at the conference.
