The Memory Studies Association

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?  How do those representations shape our actions, identities, and understandings?  How do individual-level processes interact with collective ones, and vice versa?  What does it mean to think about “memory” in these broad ways?  In what ways are we ethically and politically obligated to remember, and what are the consequences of meeting, or failing to meet, these obligations?

These and other questions, asked from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and with a variety of analytical tools, constitute the broad field of memory studies, which draws on traditional academic disciplines like psychology, sociology, history, political science, anthropology, archeology, philosophy, and literary studies, among others; on related interdisciplinary fields like museum studies, media studies, oral history, heritage studies, archive studies, and film studies; and on professional fields of practice from technology, the arts, and politics.  The Memory Studies Association thus welcomes all scholars and practitioners interested in the ways we draw on, shape, and are shaped by the past.

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.

Memory studies has grown considerably over the past decade, but does not yet have many clearly designated venues for people from different disciplinary and professional backgrounds to exchange ideas and to learn from each others’ theoretical, methodological and empirical approaches. Moreover, questions surrounding remembering are being investigated around the world, but there is too little interaction (and thus, often a lack of understanding) between various places. We hope to change this by actively identifying and inviting scholars and practitioners who are thus far underrepresented in existing scholarly networks. Finally, the MSA seeks to foster politically and civically engaged scholarship by publicly voicing concerns about political uses of the past. Learn more about the MSA, see the organigram here and read the essay “The Memory Studies Association: Ambitions and an invitation”, co-authored by Aline Sierp, Jenny Wüstenberg and Jeffrey Olick, and published in Memory Studies, here.

The Memory Studies Association was launched symbolically at its inaugural conference in Amsterdam (3-5 December 2016), which was attended by around 200 scholars and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines. It was legally registered on June 26, 2017 in the Netherlands.

THE MEMORY STUDIES ASSOCIATION

What is Memory Studies?

Como representamos o passado para nós mesmos e para os outros? Quais de nossos múltiplos passados ​​representamos e quando, onde e como mudamos essas representações? Como essas representações influenciam nossas ações, identidades e entendimentos? Como os processos individuais interagem com os processos coletivos e vice-versa? O que significa pensar em “memória” em termos amplos? De quais maneiras éticas e políticas somos obrigados a lembrar, e quais são as consequências de cumprir (ou não) essas obrigações? Essas e outras questões, propostas a partir de uma ampla variedade de perspectivas disciplinares e por meio de várias ferramentas analíticas, constituem o extenso campo de estudos da memória. Esse campo é inspirado em disciplinas acadêmicas tradicionais, como psicologia, sociologia, história, ciências políticas, antropologia, arqueologia, filosofia, estudos literários, entre outros; além de campos interdisciplinares relacionados, como estudos em museus, comunicação, história oral, estudos de patrimônio cultural, arquivamento e cinema, ou em áreas profissionais mais aplicadas no mundo da tecnologia, artes e política. Com essa multidão de influências em mente, a Associação de Estudos da Memória convida e acolhe todos os tipos de acadêmicos e profissionais, cujo o ponto em comum é o interesse pelas diversas maneiras pelas quais usamos, moldamos e somos moldados a partir do passado.

O que é a Associação de Estudos da Memória (MSA)?

A MSA é uma associação profissional para acadêmicos e pesquisadores no campo dos estudos da memória, bem como para todos os associados a museus, institutos da memória, arquivos, artes e muitos outros campos relacionados à memória. O objetivo é tornar-se o fórum mais importante no campo da memória, por meio de conferências anuais, internacionais e interdisciplinares, e por meio de uma proeminente presença on-line.
O estudo da memória cresceu consideravelmente durante a última década, mas ainda faltam caminhos claramente designados para que os interessados, provenientes de diferentes disciplinas e campos profissionais, possam trocar idéias e aprender sobre métodos teóricos, metodológicos e empíricos de outros profissionais. Além disso, as complexidades de ‘lembrar’ estão sendo investigadas em todo o mundo, mas há pouca interação (e, portanto, pouco entendimento) entre as diferentes regiões e atores que estão preocupados por esses problemas. O MSA espera mudar essa realidade através da identificação e convite de estudosos e profissionais que, até agora, foram mantidos fora das redes acadêmicas existentes. Finalmente, o MSA busca favorecer, política e civicamente, a pesquisa acadêmica comprometida com a realidade atual, para a qual ecoará os problemas mais prementes com o uso político do passado.
Para saber mais sobre o MSA, visite o organograma da organização aqui e leia o artigo “The Memory Studies Association: Ambitions and an invitation”, co-escrito por Aline Sierp, Jenny Wüstenberg e Jeffrey Olick e publicado em Memory Studies, aqui.
A Associação de Estudos da Memória foi lançada simbolicamente em sua conferência inaugural em Amsterdã (3-5 de dezembro de 2016), que recebeu mais de 200 acadêmicos e profissionais de diferentes disciplinas. A associação foi legalmente registrada em 26 de junho de 2017 nos Países Baixos.

Ассоциация исследований памяти (MSA).

Что такое исследования памяти?

Как мы представляем прошлое для себя и для других? Какое из наших многих прошлых мы представляем? Когда, где и почему мы меняем эти представления? Каким образом эти представления формируют наши действия, идентичности и понимания? Каким образом индивидуальные процессы взаимодействуют с коллективными и наоборот? Что в таком широком понимании означает думать о «памяти»? Какими способами этика и политика обязывают нас вспоминать и каковы последствия состоявшегося или неудавшегося взаимодействия с этими обязательствами? Эти и другие вопросы, задаваемые с точки зрения различных дисциплин и аналитических инструментов, составляют широкое поле исследований памяти, которые привлекают такие традиционные академические дисциплины как психология, социология, история, политические науки, антропология, археология, философия, литературные исследования, и такие в основном междисциплинарные направления как музейные исследования, исследования медиа, устная история, исследования наследия, архивные исследования и исследования кино, и такие профессиональные сферы деятельности как технологии, искусство и политика. Таким образом Ассоциация исследования памяти приглашает всех ученых и практиков, заинтересованных в намеченных нами путях, которые формируют прошлое и формируются прошлым.

Что такое MSA?

MSA – это профессиональная ассоциация исследований памяти, которая объединяет исследователей, а также тех, работает в музеях, институциях памяти, архивах, искусстве и других сферах, связанных с памятью. Ассоциация преследует цель стать ведущим форумом в области памяти посредством как ежегодной международной и междисциплинарной конференции, а также усиленной онлайн активности. Исследования памяти заметно увеличились в последнее десятилетие, но до сих пор не возникло большого числа специальных мест, где представители разных дисциплин и различной профессиональной подготовки, могли бы обмениваться идеями и изучать теоретические, методологические и эмпирические подходы коллег. Вопросы, связанные с памятью, исследуются сейчас по всему миру, при этом значительный недостаток взаимодействия приводит часто к неполному пониманию между представителями различных регионов. Мы надеемся изменить эту ситуацию, активно выявляя и приглашая ученых и практиков, которые в недостаточной мере представлены в существующих научных сетях. MSA также стремится поддерживать исследования, имеющие политическое и гражданское значение, публично выражая озабоченность политическим использованием прошлого. Более полную информацию о MSA можно получить из размещенной ниже организационной схемы и эссе «Ассоциация исследований памяти: Честолюбивые замыслы и приглашение» (The Memory Studies Association: Ambitions and an invitation), написанного Алин Зирп (Aline Sierp), Дженни Вюстенберг (Jenny Wüstenberg) и Джеффри Оликом (Jeffrey Olick), которое было опубликовано в журнале «Исследования памяти» (Memory Studies) здесь. Символическое начало Международной ассоциации памяти было положено на учредительной конференции в Амстердаме (3-5 декабря 2016), на которой присутствовало около 200 исследователей и практиков, представителей различных дисциплин. Организация официально зарегистрирована 26 июня 2017 в Нидерландах.

DE MEMORY STUDIES ASSOCIATION

Wat is “Memory Studies”?

Hoe geven we ons verleden weer, en presenteren we het aan anderen? Welke van onze vele verledens representeren we, en wanneer, waar, en waarom veranderen we deze representaties? Hoe beïnvloeden deze representaties onze acties, identiteiten, en ons denken? Hoe werken individuele herinneringsprocessen in op collectieve, en vice versa? Wat betekent het om op zo’n brede manier over “memory” te denken? Op welke manieren zijn we ethisch en politiek gezien verplicht om te herinneren, en wat zijn de consequenties van het voldoen of falen te voldoen aan deze verplichtingen? Deze en andere vragen, gesteld vanuit diverse disciplinaire perspectieven en benaderd met een veelvoud aan analytische methoden, vormen het brede onderzoeksgebied van memory studies. Memory studies combineert inzichten uit traditionele academische disciplines zoals psychologie, sociologie, geschiedenis, antropologie, archeologie, filosofie, en literatuurstudies; uit gerelateerde interdisciplinaire onderzoeksgebieden zoals museumstudies, mediastudies, mondelinge geschiedenis, erfgoedstudies, archivistiek, en filmstudies; en uit verschillende professionele werkgebieden zoals de technologische sector, de kunsten, en de politiek. De Memory Studies Association heet dan ook ieder die – werkzaam in de academische wereld en/of in de praktijk – geïnteresseerd is in de manieren waarop we teruggrijpen op het verleden, het verleden vormgeven, en zelf gevormd worden door het verleden van harte welkom!

Wat is de MSA?

De MSA is een professionele organisatie voor academici actief in het onderzoeksgebied van memory studies, en professionals werkzaam in musea, herinneringscentra, archieven, de kunsten, en andere sectoren die zich bezig houden met herinneringen. De MSA heeft als doel het meest vooraanstaande forum voor memory studies te worden, onder andere door het organiseren van een jaarlijkse, internationale, en interdisciplinaire conferentie, en een sterke online aanwezigheid. Alhoewel memory studies als onderzoeksgebied over het afgelopen decennia sterk gegroeid is, zijn er nog maar weinig duidelijk aangewezen ontmoetingsplaatsen waar memory studies professionals met uiteenlopende disciplinaire- en beroepsachtergronden ideeën kunnen uitwisselen en van elkaars theoretische, methodologische, en empirische aanpak kunnen leren. Daarnaast wordt er wereldwijd onderzoek gedaan naar vragen omtrent herinneren en herdenken, maar is er helaas weinig interactie tussen verschillende onderzoekslocaties (wat ook vaak een gebrek aan wederzijds begrip voor elkaars werk tot gevolg heeft). We hopen hier verandering in te brengen door actief academici en andere professionals die, tot nu toe, niet of nauwelijks vertegenwoordigd worden in bestaande wetenschappelijke netwerken, te identificeren en te betrekken bij de MSA. Ten slotte zet de MSA zich in voor het bevorderen van politiek en maatschappelijk betrokken onderzoek, door publiekelijk het gebruik van het verleden voor politieke doeleinden kritisch te bezien. Leer meer over de MSA; bekijk het organigram hier, en lees het Engelstalige essay “The Memory Studies Association: Ambitions and an invitation”, geschreven door Aline Sierp, Jenny Wüstenberg, en Jeffrey Olick, hier. De Memory Studies Association is symbolisch opgericht tijdens de inaugurele conferentie in Amsterdam (3-5 december, 2016), in het bijzijn van ongeveer 200 academici en andere memory studies professionals met diverse, disciplinaire achtergronden. De MSA werd op 26 juni 2017 officieel geregistreerd [bij de Kamer van Koophandel] in Nederland.

记忆研究协会

记忆研究是什么?

我们如何向自己和他人呈现过去?在众多的“过去”之中,我们呈现的是哪个过去,又是何时、何地、因何而改变对过去的呈现?这些呈现如何影响了我们的行为、认同和理解?个体层面是如何与群体层面互动的?以这些广阔视角来思考“记忆”到底意味着什么?在何种意义上我们负有道德和政治责任去铭记,而承担这些责任或无法承担又会带来何种后果?所有这些从不同学科和不同分析工具切入的问题组成了记忆研究这个广阔的领域。记忆研究不仅依赖于心理学、社会学、历史学、政治学、人类学、考古学、哲学和文学研究等传统学科,也依赖于博物馆学、媒体研究、口述历史、遗产研究、档案研究和电影研究等相关的跨学科领域,同时还依赖于和技术、艺术、政治相关的专业领域。因此,记忆研究协会欢迎所有对我们如何依赖和形塑过去或被过去所形塑感兴趣的学者和从业者。

记忆研究协会是什么?

记忆研究协会(MSA)是记忆研究学者以及活跃在博物馆、纪念机构、档案、艺术和其它记忆相关领域从业者的专业性社团。协会的目标是通过年会和跨国、跨领域的会议及强大的在线资源成为记忆研究领域最重要的平台。
记忆研究在过去的十年里取得了长足的发展,但到目前为止,这个领域还缺乏充分且明确的交流渠道以供不同学科、不同职业背景的同仁们交流思想或从各自的理论、方法、和经验取向中互相学习。与此同时,尽管世界各地都在探究有关记忆的各种问题,但各个地区之间的交流互动还十分有限,这也造成了地区之间的缺乏理解。因此,我们希望通过邀请在目前学术网络中尚未被充分代表的记忆研究学者和相关专业人士来积极参与并改变目前这一现状。最后,记忆研究协会呼吁公众对过去的政治有更多的关注并由此促进一种积极参与公众生活的学术品性。如果您想对记忆研究协会有更多的了解,欢迎在这里查看组织图并阅读Aline Sierp, Jenny Wüstenberg 和 Jeffrey Olick发表在《记忆研究》杂志(Memory Studies)上的《记忆研究协会:志愿与邀请》(“The Memory Studies Association: Ambitions and an invitation”)一文。记忆研究协会第一届年会于2016年12月3-5日在阿姆斯特丹举行,来自各学科的200多位学者和记忆从业者参加了这次大会;这也标志了记忆研究协会的正式成立。在法律上,记忆研究协会于2017年6月26日在荷兰正式进行了登记注册。

Memory Studies Association(記憶学会)

記憶研究とは

私たちは、過去を自分たちや他者のためにどのように表象しますか。複数ある過去の中で、何を表象し、いつ、どこで、そして、なぜ、私たちは、その表象を変えるのでしょうか。私たちの行為、アイデンティティ、そして理解は、どのように過去の表象により形作られているのでしょうか。個人レベルの過程と集団レベルの過程はどのように影響し合うのでしょうか。このように広い意味で、「記憶」について考えることは何を意味しますか。記憶することの倫理的、かつ政治的義務はどのように生じ、その義務を果たすこと、また、果たし損なうことはどのような結果をもたらしますか。
広い研究分野である記憶学は、心理学、社会学、歴史学、政治学、人類学、考古学、哲学といった伝統的な学問領域をはじめとして、境界領域である博物館学、メディア学、口述歴史、文化遺産学、古文書学、映画学並びに技術、芸術、政治からの専門的実践分野の見識に基づき、さまざまな学問領域からの観点及び分析手法を用いて上記を代表する問いに挑みます。したがって、記憶学会は、どのように私たちの存在が過去に基づき、形成されているのか、そしてどのように私たちが過去を作り上げるのかといった問いに関心を持つすべての研究者と実践者を歓迎します。

MSA(記憶学会)とは

MSA(記憶学会)は、記憶学研究者及び博物館、記憶施設、古文書、芸術をはじめとする分野で記憶に携わる方々向けの専門団体です。国際的且つ学際的な年次大会及びインターネットの有効な活用を通して、記憶分野において、最も重要なフォーラムになることを目指しております。
記憶研究の分野は、ここ10年間で目覚ましい成長を遂げました。しかし、様々な学問領域や職業の背景を持つ人々が交流し、お互いの理論、方法論 そして実証的なアプローチを学び合う具体的な場を欠いているのが現状です。また、記憶に関するテーマは世界中で研究が行われていますが、地域間の交流、そして理解が十分とは言えない状況にあります。記憶学会は、従来の学術ネットワークの枠組みを越えて、積極的に記憶に携わる研究者や実践者を特定し、招待することにより、そういった現状をを改善することを望んでいます。そして、最後に、記憶学会は、公に、「過去」の政治的利用についての懸念を表明することにより、政治的、市民的責任を担う研究の促進を図ります。MSAについてもっと知ろう。組織図を見るためにはこちらをクッリクしてください。Memory Studies に出版されたAline Sierp, Jenny Wüstenberg, Jeffrey Olick共著のエッセイ「The Memory Studies Association: Ambitions and an invitation」を読むためにはこちらをクリックしてください。
Memory Studies Association(記憶学会)は、2016年12月3日から5日にかけて約200人の様々な学問領域からの研究者及び実践者の参加の下、アムステルダムにて開催されました第1回大会において、設立され、2017年6月26日にオランダで、公式に登記されました。

THE MEMORY STUDIES ASSOCIATION

Što su studije sjećanja?

Kako prezentiramo prošlost sebi i drugima? Koju našu prošlost prezentiramo, i kada, gdje i zašto mijenjamo te reprezentacije? Kako ti prikazi oblikuju naše djelovanje, identitet i razumijevanje? Kako procesi na razini pojedinca komuniciraju s kolektivnim procesima i obrnuto? Što znači razmišljati o “sjećanju” iz ove široke perspektive? Na koje smo načine etički i politički obvezani prisjećati se i kakve su posljedice ispunjavanja ili nepoštivanja tih obveza?
Ova i druga pitanja koja se postavljaju iz različitih disciplinarnih perspektiva i s različitim analitičkim alatima čine široko polje studija sjećanja, koje se zasniva na tradicionalnim akademskim disciplinama poput psihologije, sociologije, povijesti, politologije, antropologije, arheologije, filozofije, itd. te književnih studija, među ostalim; o srodnim interdisciplinarnim poljima poput muzejskih studija, medijskih studija, usmene povijesti, studija kulturne baštine, arhivskih studija i filmskih studija; i na profesionalnim poljima prakse iz tehnologije, umjetnosti i politike. Udruženje za studije sjećanja stoga pozdravlja sve znanstvenike i praktičare zainteresirane za načine na koje iscrtavamo i oblikujemo prošlost, koja i oblikuje nas.

Što je MSA?

The Memory Studies Association (Udruženje za studije sjećanja), MSA, je simbolički pokrenuta na inauguralnoj konferenciji u Amsterdamu (3-5. decembra 2016.). Udruženje je pravno registrirano 26. juna 2017. Cilj MSA je djelovati kao profesionalno udruženje za znanstvenike koji se bave studijama sjećanja, kao i one koji djeluju u muzejima, memorijalnim ustanovama, arhivima, umjetnosti i drugim područjima koja se bave sjećanjem. Cilj je postati najvažniji forum za polje studija sjećanja – kroz godišnju, međunarodnu i interdisciplinarnu konferenciju i kroz snažnu prisutnost na Internetu.

Tijekom proteklog desetljeća, studije sjećanja znatno su porasle, ali još uvijek ne postoji mnogo jasno definiranih platformi za ljude iz različitih disciplina i profesija, gdje bi razmjenjivali ideje i jedni od drugih učili o teorijskim, metodološkim i empirijskim pristupima. Osim toga, tematika sjećanja se istražuje diljem svijeta, ali postoji premalo interakcija (i, posljedično, manjak razumijevanja) između različitih regija. Nadamo se kako će se ovo promijeniti aktivnim identificiranjem i pozivanjem znanstvenika i praktičara koji su do sada bili podzastupljeni u postojećim znanstvenim mrežama. Konačno, MSA nastoji poticati politički i aktivistički angažirana istraživanja putem javnog izražavanja zabrinutosti zbog političke upotrebe prošlosti. Saznajte više o MSA, pogledajte organigram ovdje i pročitajte esej „Udruga za proučavanje pamćenja: ambicije i pozivnica“, čiji su koautori Aline Sierp, Jenny Wüstenberg i Jeffrey Olick, koji je objavljen u časopisu Memory Studies, ovdje.

Kao platform, Udruženje za studije sjećanja je simbolički osnovano na inauguracijskoj konferenciji u Amsterdamu (3-5. decembra 2016), na kojoj je sudjelovalo oko 200 znanstvenika i praktičara iz širokog raspona disciplina. MSA je pravno registrirano 26. Juna 2017 u Nizozemskoj.

La Asociación de Estudios de la Memoria

What is Memory Studies?

¿Cómo representamos el pasado para nosotros mismos y los demás? ¿Cuál de nuestros múltiples pasados representamos, y cuándo, dónde y cómo cambiamos esas representaciones? ¿Cómo influyen esas representaciones en nuestras acciones, identidades y entendimientos? ¿Cómo interaccionan los procesos a nivel individual con los procesos colectivos, y viceversa? ¿Qué significa pensar en “memoria”, en estos términos tan amplios? ¿De qué maneras, éticas y políticas, estamos obligados a recordar, y cuáles son las consecuencias de cumplir (o no) con estas obligaciones? Éstas y otras preguntas, propuestas desde una gran variedad de perspectivas disciplinares y mediante diversas herramientas analíticas, constituyen el extenso campo de los estudios de la memoria. Este campo se inspira en disciplinas académicas tradicionales como la psicología, sociología, historia, ciencias políticas, antropología, arqueología, filosofía y estudios literarios, entre otras, así como en campos interdisciplinarios relacionados, como son los estudios de museos, comunicación, historia oral, estudios de patrimonio cultural, archivística, y estudios cinematográficos, o en campos profesionales más aplicados del mundo de la tecnología, las artes, y la política. Teniendo esta multitud de influencias en mente, la Asociación de Estudios de la Memoria invita y acoge a todo tipo de académicos y profesionales, cuyo punto en común es su interés en las diferentes maneras en que utilizamos, moldeamos y somos moldeados por el pasado.

¿Qué es la Asociación de Estudios de la Memoria (MSA)?

La MSA es una asociación profesional para académicos e investigadores en el campo de los estudios de la memoria, así como para todos aquellos asociados con museos, instituciones conmemorativas, archivos, las artes y muchos otros campos relacionados con la memoria. El objetivo es convertirnos en el foro más importante dentro del campo de la memoria, tanto a través de las conferencias anuales, internacionales e interdisciplinarias, como a través de una presencia online consistente.
El estudio de la memoria ha crecido considerablemente durante la última década, pero aún carece de vías claramente designadas para que los interesados, que vienen de diferentes disciplinas y campos profesionales, puedan intercambiar ideas y aprender de los métodos teóricos, metodológicos y empíricos de los demás. Además, las complejidades del ‘recordar’ están siendo investigadas en todo el mundo, pero hay poca interacción (y, por tanto, poco entendimiento) entre las diferentes regiones y actores a los que les preocupan estas cuestiones. La MSA espera cambiar esta realidad mediante la identificación e invitación de académicos y profesionales que han sido, hasta ahora, mantenidos al margen de las redes académicas ya existentes. Por último, la MSA busca favorecer, política y cívicamente, investigaciones académicas comprometidas con la realidad actual, para lo cual se hará eco de los problemas más acuciantes con el uso político del pasado.
Para saber más sobre la MSA, visita el organigrama de la asociación aquí , y lee el artículo “The Memory Studies Association: Ambitions and an invitation”, co-escrito por Aline Sierp, Jenny Wüstenberg and Jeffrey Olick y publicado en Memory Studies, aquí.
La Asociación de Estudios de la Memoria inició su andadura en la conferencia inaugural celebrada en Ámsterdam del 3 al 5 de diciembre de 2016, la cual acogió más de 200 académicos y profesionales de diferentes disciplinas. La asociación fue legalmente registrada el 26 de junio de 2017 en los Países Bajos.

Che cos’è la MSA?

L’associazione degli studi sulla memoria(MSA) è stata simbolicamente lanciata durante lasua conferenza inaugurale ad Amsterdam (3-5 dicembre2016). Èstata legalmenteregistrata il 26 luglio 2017. La MSA mira ad essere l’associazione professionaleper glistudiosinel campo dellamemoria (Memory Studies) e per coloro attivi in musei, archivi, istituzioni culturali e progetti artistici aventi a che fare con il tema del ricordo. L’obiettivo èquello di diventare il forum più importante nel campo di studi sullamemoria–siaattraverso una conferenza interdisciplinare ed internazionalea cadenza annuale,siatramite una forte presenza online. Il campo di studi sulla memoria è cresciuto notevolmente nel corso dell’ultimo decennio,ma non esistono algiorno d’oggi ancora molti luoghi di incontroperindividuiprovenienti dadifferenti ambiti disciplinari e professionalinei qualipoter scambiare idee e imparare daglialtrui approcci teoretici, metodologici ed empirici.In aggiunta,idibattitisullamemoria sonoal centro di investigazioni in tutto il mondo, ma c’è ancora poco interazione (e quindispesso una mancanza di mutua comprensione) tra i diversi ambiti. Ci proponiamo dicambiare questo anche identificando e invitando studiosi e professionisti pocorappresentati all’interno degli esistenti circoli accademici. Infine, la MSA aspira apromuovere studiimpegnati politicamente e civilmente, dando voce pubblicamente aquestioni riguardanti gliusi politici del passato. Ora è il momento di diventare membro della MSA

Kas ir ASA?

ASA tiecas apvienot profesionāļus, kas nodarbojas aratmiņas pētniecību,kā arī tos, kas saistīti un aktīvi darbojas citās ar piemiņu un atmiņusaistītās jomāsun organizācijās–muzejos, memoriālās organizācijās, arhīvos,mākslasiestādēsu.c. Asociācijas mērķis ir kļūt par būtiskāko diskusiju platformu atmiņas studijulaukā, gan organizējot ikgadējas starptautiskas starpdisciplināras konferences, gan aktīvidarbojoties interneta vidē.Atmiņaspētniecībair būtiski attīstījusies pēdējo desmit gadu laikā, bet vēl joprojām ir mazskaidri nozīmētu vietņu un formu,kas atvēlētas ideju,teorētiskās, metodoloģiskās unempīriskās pieredzesapmaiņai starpdažāduar atmiņas pētniecību saistītuakadēmiskonozaru un profesiju pārstāvjiem. Vēl jo vairāk,atceres procesitiek pētītivisā pasaulē, betsaskarsme starp pētniekiem no ģeogrāfiski dažādām atmiņu pētniecības vietām ir ļoti neliela(un bieži tai raksturīgs savstarpējās izpratnes trūkums). Mēs ceram šo trūkumu labot, aktīvimeklējot un uzrunājot pētniekus un praktiķus, kuri līdz šim bijuši maz iesaistīti citosakadēmiskos sadarbības tīklos.Papildus, ASA cerarīstiprināt akadēmijas sociālo un politiskoiesaisti, publiski paužot bažas par pagātnes izmantošanu politiskiem mērķiem.Tagad irīstais laiks kļūt par ASA biedru!
