Copenhagen, 13-16 December 2017
Second Annual Conference of the Memory Studies Association
MSA Forward: Early Career Researchers in Memory Studies
The Call for Papers for the Second Annual Conference of the Memory Studies Association is closed now. We are in the process of reviewing and evaluating proposals. Letters of acceptance will be sent out shortly. Registration for the Copenhagen Conference is open!
We are pleased to announce that contributions to travel expenses will be provided for selected participants from the global south and low-income countries. More information will be provided upon acceptance.
The Memory Studies Association’s second annual conference provides a forum for PhD students to explore the connection of their research to Memory Studies. MSA Forward offers a platform for exchanging ideas with a cohort of early researchers, learning about recent developments in Memory Studies and interacting with key academics in the field. Through flash presentations, PhD students will have the opportunity to discuss the specific ways their research connects with Memory Studies and to receive feedback from established scholars. MSA Forward will host a career café and a PhD dinner before the conference begins, and a methodology workshop during the conference itself.
We invite proposals for 5 minute flash presentations which explore the role of Memory Studies in individual PhD projects. What connections does your PhD thesis establish with Memory Studies? In which ways do your case studies or primary texts engage with issues of remembrance and forgetting? Which methodology do you use and why? Are the memory frameworks you employ transcultural, transnational, multidirectional, palimpsestic, or something else?
If you encounter any difficulties, contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Letters of acceptance will be sent out around September, 1st.
