BOOK PRESENTATION "MEMORY"
Tuesday, November 8
Heritage Hall
Co-presented by Peter Wall Institute & the Consulate General of France of Vancouver

November 11, 2018, is the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, a time of remembering and memorial, of linking past events to the world we live in today. Taking this particular moment as a catalyst, this book examines the character and relevance of memory more broadly. The essays in this collection ask readers to think creatively and deeply about notions of memory – its composition and practices – and the ways that memory is transmitted, recorded, and distorted through time and space. .
