>Between Memory and History.
>
>Recent scholarship on ways of representing the past tends to distinguish
>between mythic forms of memory – unself-conscious, spontaneous,
>compelling – and archival memory or “history” – distant, self-conscious,
>deliberate, critical, re-constructive. While the former lays claim to
>absolutism and truth, the latter – despite its endless efforts to
>document and verify – is painfully aware of the impossibility of truly
>representing the past. This session seeks to examine how authors of
>fiction or autobiography have negotiated these concepts in order to find
>effective ways of accessing the past and ensuring memory in the present.
