29 June–3 July 2010
The Memory, Empire and Technology summer school explores the relationship between memory and technology through a series of seminars, lectures and workshops on a broad range of subjects. The sessions will be taught by a team of internationally renowned scholars and will range from experimental early flying to colonial memories in film, from vinyl and swinging London to photography and workshops on digital archives. These sessions will be complemented by afternoon activities centred around London as technological city: the Greenwich History Project, visits to the Stanley Kubrick Archives and the Warburg Library, and an architectural tour on a historic Routemaster bus. The summer school welcomes researchers, students, artists, archivists, conservation and heritage professionals and any others interested in memory, technology and the industrial legacy of London.
This summer school is organised by the Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory at the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies on behalf of the School of Advanced Study. The Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory also offers an MA in Cultural Memory.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance from the School of Advanced Study, University London. Participants who wish to receive credit should make their own arrangements with their home institution/tutor to assess written work or other piece of assessable work.
