CMCI is played a leading part in the Mnemonics 2015 event here in London. Working in collaboration with Goldsmiths and the University of Westminster, this high profile international postgraduate research conference was part of the international ‘Mnemomics’ network, designed to help support colleagues doing work related to cultural memory studies.
The event featured keynotes, book launches and training initiatives: see http://www.mnemonics.ugent.be/
The event was opened by the head of CMCI, Professor Anna Reading, while our Dr Jessica Rapson launched her new book: Topographies of Suffering: Buchenwald, Babi Yar, Lidice (Berghahn, 2015). Professor Reading also launched her own: Anna Reading, Tamar Katriel, eds. Cultural Memories of Nonviolent Struggles: Powerful Times (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015).
