LIMS Summer School 2024 (both UniTN and non-UniTN students)

This first edition of the LIMS Summer School (Trento, 26-31 August 2024) aims to offer an introduction to this increasingly rich and stimulating discipline, with classes and activities that especially concentrate on one of the basic questions driving the field, namely: what is memory? Is it a function of the mind, the result of a socio-historical process, or something in between? During the classes and the related activities memory experts from different fields, namely history (ancient to contemporary), sociology, psychology, semiotics, anthropology, literature and media studies will introduce the possible answers to this major question and contribute to configuring a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary picture of memory studies and their major research topics and approaches.

The Summer School is open to up to 15 advanced international undergraduate and graduate students (upper-level Bachelor and all Master students) as well as PhD students5 more places are reserved for UNITN students.

 

Call now closed.

MA level Courses in Memory Studies (for UniTN students only)

Memoria e storia (second semester)

Since 2019/2020, a curricular course dedicated to Memory Studies has been offered at the Department of Humanities. It is turned to MA Students, but it is also open to PhD students. It introduces the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary field of memory studies, in its first part, and focuses on the multifaceted, changing role of memory in historical research, and the relation between historiography and non-historiographic forms of memory, in the second.

The course, recently re-named as ‘Memoria e storia’, is taught by G. Proietti and usually takes places in the second semester (March to May). 

Each year the course is partly built in progress, according to the students’ disciplinary backgrounds and interests. Large room is reserved for discussions and debates both during regular classes, and on the occasion of two or three guest lectures which constitute integral part of the course. A written essay is eventually requested as part of the evaluation process, and often represents the starting point of an ensuing dissertation.
