Cultures of Memory Poster

UCL Anthropology is one of the four organizing universities for The Cultures of Memory Symposium 2013, which will be held in London and York during 16-20 October 2013.

The Cultures of Memory is a multi-faceted, international symposium in which the four organizing universities will present their distinct creative practices and scholarship related to memory. These include public memory projects concerned with Guantánamo Bay detention camp and the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, the performance and manifestation of remembrance, and the maintenance of cultural memory.

The symposium will present these 'cultures of memory' in exhibitions, performances, panel discussions, and papers.
