How is the representation of space as both a means of representation of memory, and, more broadly, of a social imaginary, constructed in literature and film? How does the “staging” of such space, through reenactment or other narrative forms, relate to memory and meaning? 

We invite abstracts that address the intersection of memory and trauma—including intergenerational trauma, postmemory, and prosthetic memory—and their representation and reenactment in literature and film from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives, including philosophy, history, comparative literature, film studies, performance studies, critical race theories, feminist and queer studies, and disability studies.
