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.”

    Will any of the papers or presentations be posted afterward or will any of the talks be taped and posted?

      It’s unlikely that the talks will be taped and posted. It’s possible that the papers may be posted, but those will be individual decisions on the part of each presenter. Thanks for asking!
