"Memory and Change in times of crisis" seeks to debate the politics of memory, the negotiations and appropriations of the past and the public claims in a context of political and social crisis. With the presence of two specialists in Memory Studies, Emily Keightley and Francisco Férrandiz, the meeting will focus on the Spanish and British cases. It will take the format of a meeting particularly aimed at PhD students.

Francisco Férrandiz: Cuelgamuros in its labyrinth

Emily Keightley is Professor of Media and Memory Studies in the Centre for Communication and Culture at Loughborough University. Her research interests centre on the mediation of time and memory in everyday life and she is currently the principal investigator on the Migrant Memory and Postcolonial Imagination project (2017-2024) funded by The Leverhulme Trust. She edits the journal Media, Culture & Society and is on the editorial board of Memory, Mind & Media.

Francisco J. Ferrándiz is Associate of the Center of Humanities and Social Sciences (CCHS) at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). His research in the anthropology of the body, violence and social memory encompasses two main ethnographic objects: the spiritist cult of María Lionza in Venezuela and, since 2003, the politics of memory in contemporary Spain, through the analysis of the current process of exhumation of mass graves dating from the Civil War.
