The Memory Studies Association is the central forum for scholars from around the world and across disciplines who are interested in memory studies. Its goal is to further establish and extend the status of memory studies as a field, institutionalizing memory studies in a way that is able to provide fundamental knowledge about the importance and function of memories in the public and private realm. The ERC project became a Benefactor member of the Association in 2017.
The Second Annual Conference of the Memory Studies Association took place in Copenhagen from the 14-16 December 2017. Silvana Mandolessi delivered the paper “No Man’s land: Interrogating Placelessness in Digital Memories” in the panel entitled “Digital Memories”.
