The class is organized as a reading seminar - students read the assigned texts independently and provide written responses to the specified questions. The texts students read are illustrative of fundamental issues and polemics in the field of media and culture. Students read the pre-selected texts as their homework and they present their critical understanding of the text in their homeworks.
Content-wise, this seminar will introduce basic frameworks for the study of mediated memory. The individual and collective memory has been under detailed scrutiny in the field of media cultural studies as far as media are understood to be significant agents in the process of memory making.
The class opens with the introductory lecture which reviews seminal theoretical perspectives on memory in the fields of philosophy, sociology, anthropology, history and media studies. It pinpoints core concepts such as personal and collective memory, difference between memory, history and the past, nostalgia, trauma, discontinuity of memory, etc. These core concepts are further illuminated by the texts assigned for further reading and thus explained in detail step by step.

The course aims at enhancement of students´ capacities to read scholarly texts. It strives to make a process of reading scholarly literature controlled and reflexive activity. The course gradually unveils the process in which meaning is distilled from academic texts.  The course also aspires to make students familiar with main perspectives on conjunctions between media and memory as they developed in the field of media cultural studies.

Opening lecture: Theoretical framework for the study of memory in old and new media age

The lecture looks at the blossoming discipline of memory studies and sheds light on concepts which are useful starting points for enquiry into connections between memory and the workings of communication media. The lecture argues that there is a close nexus between memory and media which manifests itself in the ways memory is produced "in", "by" and "through" media. It pinpoints principal sites of media memory scholarship with emphasis on  journalism, media’s engagement in stimulation of individual memory, media’s involvement in sedimentation of collective memory (mainly in channelling potential social hegemony) and transformation brought about by transfer of memory processes on the digital platform.
