The Family as Mnemonic Community

November 29 @ 8:00 am - November 30 @ 5:00 pm

The symposium includes an international and interdisciplinary group of researchers who will share their research on family memory and discuss the following broad questions:

  • what kinds of stories or information do families pass down the generations?
  • how are family stories about the past transmitted, remembered, and received?
  • why do family memories and stories about the past matter in the present?
  • what are the advantages and disadvantages of different scholarly approaches?

Attendance at the symposium is free but is limited to twenty places.

If you would like to attend one or more specific sessions (numbered 1-8 on the Programme),
