This book launch of 'Doing Memory Research' (Palgrave, 2019) in SPUI25 showcases scholarly contributions from diverse disciplinary backgrounds across the humanities and social sciences, including literature studies, media studies, history, archaeology, and artistic research through to geography, sociology, digital ethnography and the digital humanities.

|Time||17:00 - 18:30|
The editors of the book, Carolyn Birdsall and Danielle Drozdzewski, will discuss some of the new directions in the field, and their own explorations with soundwalking and digital sound analysis when researching Dutch commemorative practices on 4 and 5 May, such as the Silent March (Stille Tocht) in Amsterdam. They will be joined by special guest, Tess Osborne (University of Birmingham / University of Groningen), whose work reflects on the possibilities for cross-disciplinary innovation in memory research with the aid of wearable video and bio-sensors.
The book launch is organized in cooperation with the Faculty of Humanities and the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM).
