Cursusdoelen
Basic knowledge of the interdisciplinary field of cultural memory studies, with specific reference to the arts; familiarity with some key debates on particular issues; ability to apply theoretical insights critically to particular cases and to formulate questions for research in the field.
Inhoud
The interdisciplinary field of cultural memory studies brings together researchers with a scholarly interest in the cultural production of memory and its role in shaping collective identities and values. In this seminar, we survey the most recent theoretical literature on these issues and examine the changing memory cultures of the modern period against the background of war and societal change.
 
How do cultural memory and collective identity work together?  How does commemoration shape notions of citizenship, of who 'belongs' and who doesn't? How do remembering and forgetting shape ideas about the future? How do new counter-memory narratives emerge in society?  What role do the arts, literature in particular, play in these processes?
Our seminar will provide an introduction to theoretical debates and current research in the interdisciplinary field of cultural memory studies. Our approach will be comparative and multimedial. While paying special attention to literature, we will look at creative writing alongside and in interaction with the other media and artistic practices through which the past is publicly remembered (monuments, movies, rituals, museums, family albums). 

This seminar is a compulsory part of the Research MA Comparative Literary Studies; and is an elective for students in the following Research master programmes: Gender Studies; Media and Performance, Religious Studies.

Career orientation:
This course helps prepare for a PhD training in the Humanities; it also offers training in transferable skills that are valuable in non-academic careers (critical writing, comparative analysis of a broad range of cultural media; data collection and management).
