PHOTOGRAPHY AND POSTMEMORY

 

Friday, March 20, 2015 - 12:00 to 14:00
Speaker: 
Kirsten McAllister

The workshop will consider photography as social practice and what photos can tell us about intergenerational memory practices as well as expanding our imagined community to include to others previously considered outsiders. Drawing on her own work on photography, starting with her co-edited book, Locating Memory: Photographic Acts (with Annette Kuhn), and other projects on internment camp photography and more recent community-based photography projects with asylum seekers in Scotland, Kirsten McAllister will consider the complexities of “witnessing” and “postmemory.”

 

Kirsten McAllister is an Associate Professor of Communications at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. She is the author of Terrain of Memory: A Japanese Canadian Memorial Project (2010) and co-edited with Annettee Kuhn,  Locating Memory: Photographic Acts (2006). She is currently working on a transnational project on asylum seekers.
