Greek memories: theory and practice

Department of Classics & Ancient History, Ritson Room, 27-28 September 2010


Memory, and its correlate, forgetting, are at the centre of a recent surge of studies focused on the construction of collective identities. In the wake of Halbwachs, and more recently Assman, much work has been devoted to the relationship between cultural memory, intentional history (the invention of tradition), and identity, in ancient Greece and elsewhere. While these elements are bound to interact in any society, the specific ways in which they are conceptualized and function may differ significantly. We propose to reorient the discussion by focusing on how the theories and the practices of memory, recollection, and forgetting play themselves out in specific texts and authors from ancient Greece, within a wide chronological span (from the Homeric poems to Plotinus), and across the entire range of literary 'genres' (epic and lyric poetry, tragedy, comedy, historiography, philosophy and scientific prose treatises). In particular, we plan to explore two interrelated aspects: (i) explicit discursive reflections on memory, recollecting, and forgetting as divine and human experiences and (ii) the role of these reflections in shaping practices of thought, communication, and writing.
