Event description

Description

The past fifteen years have borne witness to waves of protests on different scales. We have seen the development of protest cultures and an increased connectedness, pluralism and multi-directionality in protesting voices. Our inter-disciplinary and multi-sectoral network explores the ways in which these protest actions can be productively envisaged as something remembered and/or forgotten, transmitted to new generations and linked back to memory as fundamentally social (Bartlett 1932) and creative through the ‘mnemonic imagination’ (Pickering and Keightley 2012). This final conference brings together researchers and cultural organisations to discuss and imagine the role of memory and memory institutions in past protests.
