A conference to be held at Birkbeck College, University of London on 22-23 April 2010

Organizers: Silke Arnold-de Simine and Joanne Leal

This conference will set out to explore relationships between gender and memory as they have been articulated in literature and film within a European context since the 18th century. Key questions to be examined will include:

- Are ways of relating to the past gendered?

- To what extent are different roles assigned to men and women within memory discourses?

- Who remembers and who is (not) remembered?

- Does public memory belong to men and private memory to women?

- Are women primarily associated with communicative memory, while men determine cultural memory?

- To what extent are different memory genres/media (autobiography, novel/fiction, film) gendered?

- Do different memory concepts (mourning, nostalgia, memorialisation) have gendered connotations?

- In what ways are the relationships of men and women to memory and its discourses historically and culturally contingent?

- Can remembering and forgetting have gender political dimensions?

- To whose memories are value assigned in different cultural/historical contexts?

- What kinds of (gendered) memory community have been established?

- Who owns memory?

In order that these questions can be explored in an inter- and cross-disciplinary fashion, the conference will seek to bring together scholars working on memory and gender in a variety of different fields, including English and Humanities, Modern Languages, Media and Film Studies.
