This page is for members of the Methodology working group
As Memory Studies grows as a field, the “how” questions have started to take their place alongside the “what” and the “why” questions that guide and inspire our collective work. The Methodologies Working Group (MWG) aims to facilitate discussion about the “how” questions in order to develop better understandings of the epistemologies and ethics that underpin the field. We also aim to explore approaches that open up the field by experimenting with methodologies that break down disciplinary/interdisciplinary divides or that negotiate the local, national, and transnational dimensions of research in Memory Studies. The MWG seeks to engage in active and ethical collaboration and experimentation both among our members, but also between our members and local communities in the various locations where MSA events occur.
