Together with Aline Sierp and Jeffrey Olick, I am one of the co-founders and current co-chairs of the Memory Studies Association.
The Memory Studies Association was launched symbolically at its inaugural conference in Amsterdam (3-5 December 2016), which was attended by around 200 scholars and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines.
The second MSA conference took place in Copenhagen (14-16 December 2017) with 600 people and the third will be in Madrid (25-28 June 2019). Please visit the MSA website for information about the PhD training workshop (MSA Forward), as well as our working and regional groups, workshops, mentorship program and conferences.
The MSA aims to be a professional association for Memory Studies scholars, as well as those who are active in museums, memorial institutions, archives, the arts and other fields engaged in remembrance. The objective is to become the most important forum for the memory field – both through an annual, international and interdisciplinary conference and through a strong online presence. Please consider becoming a member now to support this endeavor!
