Memory, Meaning and History is one of History modules in which challenges you to explore how historians can understand the past by investigating cross-cutting themes. In the late 20th century, memory started to become a key concept for cultural historians, taking the study of History through what is often referred to as ‘the mnemonic turn’. Memory Studies is now a fully-fledged and interdisciplinary field with its own historiography and a wealth of insights and controversies for anyone who is interested in how humans remember and make sense of the past, taking in not only the memories of the living and the acts of commemoration (and forgetting) that mark the present, but also the question of what historians can know today about memory in the more distant past. Whatever your own specialism, this module will help you situate your interests in debates that range across periods, encouraging you to frame your research in more conceptually ambitious contexts and understand the strengths and limitations of the ‘mnemonic turn’.
