Pasts and Presents: Recollection, Archives, and Curation of Time

Triveni Kuchi (Rutgers Libraries)
Anjali Nerlekar (AMESALL)

How is memory created and archived? In what ways can memory be accessed? Are there personal and public memories? Can memories be fabricated and distorted? In this seminar we will examine these questions from literary, information, and archival studies perspectives. Through class discussions, guest lectures, films, and field trips we will learn more about what and how we create, keep, find, remember, and forget information about our past and present. For final presentations students will explore false memories, digitized memories, personal and public memories, and the impact of memory and its relation to imagination and the society.
