Our association with memory has evolved through time and socio-technological evolution. Human history can be traced through ancient cave art and monuments, epic oral ballads, the written word and the digital highway. Ethics, morality and identity are all associated with memory and yet memory eludes the greatest philosophers in their attempt to define it. How does memory play its part in artistic creation? How does art transmit memory? How has technology transformed ways of remembering? This edition of Aigne opens up these questions and more to postgraduates from disciplines across the humanities to investigate new research and conceptualizations of memory.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
memory and technology
crossroads of memory
biography and autobiography
Articles presented to Aigne must be original works between 3,000 and 6,000 words in length. The deadline for submissions is December 31st, 2011. Submissions are accepted in both the English and Irish language.
