In Western post-WW2 history, the Seventies marked a watershed between cultures and societies still defined by a large degree of consensus and societies marked by a high degree of conflict, crossed by political, social, demographic, economic, aesthetic and literary transformations, and characterized by ideological polarizations. From the vantage point of intellectual history, the Seventies registered a relentless questioning of modes of knowing and theoretical foundations, and generated a thorough revision of critical thinking, as the (mainly) French and German traditions of philosophical modernity

Graduate Journal aspeers Calls for Papers on "American Memories" by 31 Oct 2012

full name / name of organization: 
aspeers: emerging voices in american studies
contact email: 
info@aspeers.com

“Never forget.” Shortly after the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, this phrase, along with pictures of the Twin Towers set against the backdrop of an American flag, appeared on T-shirts, coffee mugs, mouse pads, and a whole host of other marketable goods. In many ways, these cultural artifacts and their treatment showcase the intricate interweaving of such concepts as nationalism, identity, trauma, narrative, and consumer culture within the complex of “American Memories.” In fact, fueled in part by innovations in such diverse fields as historiography, neuropsychology, museum studies, and political science, the number of panels, conferences, seminars, as well as articles and books published on different notions of memory has seen a rise in American studies and other fields in recent years: ‘Memory’ has become one of the buzzwords in the humanities and social sciences. aspeers 6 (2013) seeks to collect and present the best MA-level work on the topic of “American Memories.”
