Cultures of Memory

Welcome to the Cultures of Memory research group. This research group is focused upon the creation of spaces for the discussion, development and dissemination of memory work from across Newcastle University. 

Our coordinating group is built from academics from a range of disciplines (see the 'People' section for more details). Over the past year we have run a series of workshop events as we sought to develop a network of researchers from across the university. 

Earlier this year we hosted a wonderful Broadcast Bartender event, for which recordings will be available here in the coming weeks. Our next event, a seminar and screening of the film 'Kisses to the Children' with a discussion with director Vassilis Loules, will take place on 29th April 2020.

Please also take note of our open meeting on Monday 3rd February at 2pm. Please do come along if you would like to get more invovled in the future of the research group. 

If you would be interested in collaborating with the group, or would like further information on upcoming events, please get in touch with us through the Contact Us page, or sign up to our mailing list.
