SU London helped to organize the 2013 Cultures of Memory Symposium. The Cultures of Memory is a multi-faceted, international symposium in which the four organizing universities will present their distinct creative practices and scholarship related to memory. These include public memory projects concerned with Guantánamo Bay detention camp and the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, the performance and manifestation of remembrance, and the maintenance of cultural memory. The symposium will present these ‘cultures of memory’ in exhibitions, performances, panel discussions, and papers.
Other participating universities include University College London, York St John University, and Massey University. SU London center director Dr. Meredith Hyde will give the welcome address on Wednesday, October 16.
