According to John Bodnar, 'Public Memory is a body of beliefs and ideas
about the past that help a public or society understand its past,
present, and by implication, its future.' In distinction from
conventional history, Public Memory research fashions a relation between
past and present which, whether real or imagined, asserts the important
shaping spirit of the past and its persistence in everyday life. Public
Memory is also concerned with the past as a potential resource for new
social directions: every act of scholarly retrieval might contribute to
a project of cultural renewal.
Under the general theme of 'Legacies', the conference invites
submissions for individual papers and proposals for panel sessions or
group presentations in the areas of
* Culture, retrieval and revival
* Memory and the practice of everyday life
* History, ideology and refashioning the past
* Colonialism and its aftermaths
* Indigenous, ethnic and multicultural memories
* Public memory and national identities
* Memory and myth
* Public memory as false consciousness
'LEGACIES 09' welcomes papers or presentations in disciplinary and
inter-disciplinary fields such as Anthropology, History, Literature,
Theatre Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, Multicultural Studies,
Indigenous Studies, Whiteness Studies, Gender Studies, Queer Theory,
Media and Communications, Sociology and Political Theory. 'LEGACIES 09'
invites submissions from professional academics, postgraduate students
and non-academic cultural practitioners.
