Dynamics of Memory is an interdisciplinary group based at Lancaster University, founded in 2008. The group has hosted many events and has established links with scholars and grass-roots institutions in the UK, Austria, Ireland, France, Sweden, Estonia, Spain, Bangladesh, Poland, Denmark the USA and New Zealand. It was awarded a Networking Grant from HERA in 2009 and Research Networking Grant by the AHRC in 2011.
Our group aims is to bring together the wide spectrum of chronological, geographical and disciplinary areas of expertise covered by its members, focusing on the relationship of memory and justice.
We investigate new approaches to memory studies that can afford new insights into the processes of human rights abuses, conflict resolution and memorialisation of war.
Dynamics of Memory also aims to assess how individuals and social groups use or misuse narratives about the past and the ways in which collective and social memory become tools for the development of national, regional or local identities.
Among our activities, we hosted a workshop on Holocaust Memories in 2011 from which the clip below has been selected.
