We are living through a decade of centenaries as we remember or reimagine the cataclysmic events of a century ago which helped to shape the modern world – the Great War, the Easter Rising, the Bolshevik Revolution. Each year provides an opportunity to reflect on the nature and problematics of commemoration. This conference provides a venue to explore the relationship between remembering and writing, and to consider connections between personal, collective and national memories. Participants will explore the theme of “remembering” in its widest sense, from personal memories in diaries and oral histories, to collective memory housed in public records or embodied in history, literature, folklore, and mythology. Graduate students welcome.

Acts of injustice in or with the Indian subcontinent have been committed by previous generations in institutional, social, political or familiar contexts. This conference seeks to highlight some of these wrongs and discuss the various ways they have been or should be righted.  This conference is likewise geared by an inclusionary energy that connects diverse manifestations of “Indianness” against the background of an Indoceanic geography. W/righting wrongs involves acts of remembrance whereby memory and history coalesce, and, as a result, a dynamics of self situated beyond the national/global dichotomy is delineated.
