Remembering and Forgetting in April
For the next meeting of the Cardigan Continuum we are going to try something new. So, instead of meeting in a pub, we will be meeting in the Arts and Humanities Common Room in Foster Court, University College London at 6.30pm on 17th April. Directions can be found here
The texts under discussion have been inspired by the recent Jenkinson lecture delivered by Professor Jeannette Bastian on the subject of ‘Forgetting to Remember: Archivists and the Memory Imperative’. The first of these will be the classic article by Laura Millar ‘Touchstones: Considering the Relationship between Memory and Archives’ originally published in 2006 in Archivaria 61. The second will be Paul Connerton, ‘Seven types of forgetting’, originally published in 2008 in Memory Studies vol.1 no.1 (thanks for the suggestion Fabi).
We hope to see you there, but in the meantime, have a good Easter!
