Overview

Consider how we recall war and violence and discover a different way to remember

Our memories of conflict are often used against us. Nationalist movements manipulate the story - offering confrontational, harmful perspectives. But there’s a different way.

This course takes a new approach to remembering, ‘agnostic memory’. You’ll explore how it improves upon the other two models of memory - ‘cosmopolitan memory’ and ‘antagonistic memory’, going on to see how agonistic memory can be used in your own work to relate more accurately to the past.

By the end of this course, you’ll understand how the various models are used today - and will have a new way to look at history.

The course will be of interest to policymakers who are responsible for funding and coordinating commemorative activities. It would also be of interest to civic organisations in the field of memory and commemoration, and museum professionals - including directors, curators, conservators, and educators.
