Keynote Speaker: Professor Marita Sturken (Professor of Media, Culture and Communication, New York University)
The organising theme for the postgraduate conference will be ‘re-member’: remembering, remembrance and bringing together. It will feature papers by postgraduate students across the disciplines relating to the Series. The conference will reflect on digital means of commemorating war and how digital legacies affect reconstruction and reconciliation as well as pointing towards new forms and media. It will consider how such forms might affect the ways in which war and commemoration is documented, and how our memory of these events may be changing as a result of the new technologies. A Call for Papers will be issued in due course.
