WHAT IS THE MSA?

The MSA is a professional association for Memory Studies scholars, as well as those who are active in museums, memorial institutions, archives, the arts and other fields engaged in remembrance. The objective is to become the most important forum for the memory field – both through an annual, international and interdisciplinary conference and through a strong online presence.

WHAT IS MEMORY STUDIES?

How do we represent the past to ourselves and to others?  Which of our many pasts do we represent, and when, where, and why do we change those representations?

MEMBERSHIP

Why should you become a paying member of the Memory Studies Association?  There are several tangible benefits to membership already available as well as in the works.  These include:

  • discount on books
  • access to members-only materials, including job listings, discussion forums, career advice, teaching resources, reading recommendations and more!
  • eligibility to participate in over a dozen MSA Working Groups and MSA regional groups
  • participation in the MSA mentorship program, career development events, and methodology workshops

We are very happy to announce that the MSA has reached formal agreement with SAGE and the editors of Memory Studies.  Henceforth, the journal will be published in association with the MSA.  This means:

  • All members of the MSA will receive free access to the Journal through a protected link on the MSA website
  • The first issue each year will be a special issue edited by the MSA
  • From 2019 there will be an annual SAGE Journal of Memory Studies Outstanding Book Award, presented at the MSA Annual Meeting, for first books authored/co-authored by MSA members
  • The Association will award a prize for the best paper presented at the MSA Annual Meetings, with the author’s option to have the paper published in Memory Studies

But, as enticing as these tangible benefits are, the real reason to become a paying member of the Association is that you want it to exist.  Like any professional association, the MSA will depend on the support and devotion of its members.

INTERNSHIPS

This internship will provide you with the unique opportunity to see how an organisation such as the MSA works behind the scenes. You will support the presidents and the executive committee in the everyday running of the association. This includes the preparation of the next annual conference, research into and preparation of funding applications, the compilation of annotated bibliographies, communication with our members, contribution to the website and the social media channels of the association etc.

Given that this is a very young organization, you will have a lot of opportunities to contribute with your own ideas and will be able to work independently on various projects. This will allow you to a) get insights into the workings of a newly established non-profit association and to b) closely collaborate with scholars and practitioners in different countries.

If you are interested in applying, just send a letter of motivation and a CV to info@memorystudiesassociation.org.

SEND US YOUR IDEAS

The MSA and its website are brand new and still being developed. We welcome your input and ideas about how to make this association and its website into great resources on and for memory studies.
