Performing Memory: paper to be presented at the LARM conference

On Nov 15, Susan Kozel contributes a paper to the LARM Audio Research Archive Conference on Digital Archives, Audiovisual Media, and Cultural Memory at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Kozel’s paper is entitled Performing Memory. Kozel writes:

These forms of fleeting but still recorded memories do (at least) two things simultaneously: they call attention to the many small, non-hierarchical and mediated acts of archiving and sharing that occur through mobile social media, and they reconfigure debates in performance studies that artificially separate the disappearance of the live from the mediation of the recorded. The performance of memory is as much about forgetting as about recalling, disappearance as it is reconstruction.
