MASTERCLASS 1: Researching Media and Memory

The aims of this Masterclass are twofold. First, we shall provide participants with an overview of research methods and analysis techniques in the study of mediated memory. A particular concern will be the ways in which research methodologies open up the possibility of doing research on mediated memory on the basis of its scales of operation, ranging from intimate autobiographical remembering to public cultures of commemoration. By way of example, the second part of the class will illustrate questions of scale by focusing on the relationship between memory and personal photography. This section of the class will be more participatory, and will be broken up into small groups. In order to take part in group discussion we would like you to come to the class having selected one photograph from your personal or family collection, one that is for whatever reason highly significant to you in how it ‘speaks of’ the past. We would like you to bring this to the class and be prepared to talk about it to other members of your group, and also for you to ask questions of the other members’ key photographs. The overall intention is for you to reflect on how, through memory work colloquy, we can begin to develop our understanding of how personal memory is mediated by the visual records which photography provides, and how personal photographs operate in the sphere of cultural memory. The final part of the class will pool the main considerations arising from each of the group discussions.
