This subject investigates photographic practice and theory through the discourse of memory. In a series of lectures and tutorials, students consider the various ways in which memory is linked to identity, storytelling and autobiography, collective memory and history, remembrance, time and forgetting, and trauma and embodiment. The subject focuses on the various techniques that creative practitioners use to communicate such themes in memory: from photographic montage and remixing archives to rotoscoping.
