The Nottingham Trent University invites proposals for papers to be given at a 2-day postgraduate symposium on the 25th and 26th of January 2007.
The idea for this symposium arose from the realisation that more and more postgraduates across the disciplines are working in an area loosely defined as “memory studies”. Often, however, postgraduates find themselves crossing discipline boundaries in their research. Indeed, the hypothesis behind the symposium is that the interdisciplinarity of memory studies is the inevitable result of the increasing dissolution of boundaries between forms such as historiography, literature, biography, autobiography and public art, a dissolution particularly noticeable when the focus is on the processes and character of memory.
The organisers of the symposium would welcome papers which examine the overlapping of genres in relation to ANY memory theme.
Please submit your proposal to Professor Bill Niven at email@example.com no later than the 10th of November 2006.
