ACLA 2019-The Story of Remembrance: The Future of Memory and Memories of the Future (Washington DC, 3/7-3/10, 2019)

Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 10:38am
The American Comparative Literature Association's 2019 Annual Meeting
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

Following the success of its previous ACLA seminar “The Story of Memory: Remembering, Forgetting, and Unreliable Narrators” held in March 2018, this seminar invites paper proposals to discuss how memory is represented and imagined diversely in the works of literature, art, and film from different cultural contexts. Living in an age saturated with memory and forgetting, we see the protagonists unsettled by their lost memory in films and novels: Memento (2000), The Bourne Identity (2002), Remainder (2005), The Amnesiac (2007), Amnesia (2014), The Girl On the Train (2015), The Buried Giant (2015), etc.. These amnesic protagonists, haunted by déjà vu they can never make sense of, often experience trauma and violence.
