This international symposium on the relationship between creation and postmemory will examine how the arts and other creative forms harness indirect memory and ensure its transmission through a variety of archives and traces. The Cambodian genocide will be the primary focus, but other genocides of the 20th century, such as the Holocaust and the Armenian and Rwandan genocides, will be discussed in a comparative perspective. Conference opens at 3 p.m. on April 10 with keynote lecture by Marianne Hirsch and Leo Spitzer. See www.maisonfrancaise.org for full program, times, sponsors, and RSVP information.
