SUMMER SCHOOL

MEMORY, EMPIRE AND TECHNOLOGY

29 JUNE-3 JULY 2010

Held at the School of Advanced Study and organised by the Centre for the
Study of Cultural Memory, this Summer School consists of a series of
seminars, lectures and workshops on a broad range of subjects related to
the relationship between memory and technology. The sessions will be
taught by a team of internationally renowned scholars and range from
experimental early flying to colonial memories in film, to photography
and workshops on digital archives. These sessions will be complemented
by afternoon activities centred round London understood as technological
city: the Greenwich History Project, visits to the Stanley Kubrick
Archives and the Warburg Library, and an architectural tour of the East
End and Olympic Site on the famous Routemaster bus. This School welcomes
researchers, students, artists, archivists, conservation and heritage
professionals and any others interested in memory, technology and the
industrial legacy of London.

Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance from the School of
Advanced Study, University London. Participants who wish to receive
credit should make their own arrangements with their home
institution/tutor to assess written work or another piece of assessable
work.

Deadline for Applications: 30 April 2010
