Media Fields Journal Issue 5: Memory, Space, and Media
Submission Deadline: November 15, 2011
Trends towards spatial analysis and memory studies have both emerged as vibrant and booming fields of inquiry in the humanities. In this special issue, we ask what is to be gained at the intersection of memory studies, spatial studies and media studies? What role does disciplinary specificity have to play in the conjunction of these fields? What are other ways to examine memory and space outside a paradigm of trauma?
