>The session, ýMemory and History in Film,ţ will look into the relationship
>of memory and history and its representation through the cinematic medium.
>This proposed session will address a range of issues, questions and debates
>exploring the relationship between history and memory. We would also explore
>the relationship between film and literature, explaining and evaluating the
>issues most frequently raised on the subject.  It also aims to raise
>questions crucial to the understanding of how the cinema (re)works the ideas
>of history and memory through representation. Therefore, the rationale for
>organizing this panel is to trace the trajectories of these two
>forcesˇMemory and Historyˇalways at odds with each other within culture.
>What is the nature of this relationship? Is there a difference between
>memories of the past and the past itself? How do individual and social
>memories intersect?  What do the sites of memory tell us about how events
>are remembered and which are forgotten?  How does memory become history?
>
>Specific topics include oral history and social history, private and public
>memory, myth and history, war and remembrance, popular memory and nostalgia,
>psychoanalysis and history, memory and collective identity, and trauma and
>memory.
