Memory, Memorials, and Media: Reimagining World History
The Northeastern History Graduate Student Association (HGSA)’s 6th annual graduate student conference will be held March 22-23, 2014 at Northeastern University, Boston MA.
The 2014 conference title is “Memory, Memorials, and Media: Re-Imagining World History.” With this interdisciplinary theme, we hope to explore how memory is made, used, preserved, and accessed through a wide variety of mediums around the world and over time. We are particularly interested in how the collection of memory and the act of memorialization can be influenced by technology.
Our full schedule will be coming soon. For now, here are the basics.
When: March 22-23, 2014
Where: Northeastern University, Boston MA
Keynote: Dan Cohen, founding executive director of the Digital Public Library of America (formerly of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University). His keynote address is entitled “World History and the Global Digital Research Environment.”
