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 the class. 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.

In summer semester 2021, the course will be conducted online.  We will meet regularly as scheduled. The course is grounded in discussions over the assigned texts. The texts must be read prior to the meetings. Every student must read the text scheduled for the particular class at home as his/her homework. Home reading is crucial component of this reading seminar.

In-class work consists of short introduction to the topic and followed up by group discussions. The students are divided into several groups and each group is presented with the question/task relating to the specific piece of reading. Groups have 10 minutes to prepare, afterwards all groups present their conclusions in oral.

The course has Moodle site here: https://dl1.cuni.cz/course/view.php?id=11399

Each student enrolled in this course must register for the class in Moodle.

In Moodle, the course is divided into 12 sessions. Every session consists of one piece of reading which is assigned to the session and uploaded in Moodle for students´ convenience.

The students get the credit upon preparation of their own presentations. The presentations will be presented during the last meeting. Presentations must be 5-7 minutes long.

Instructions for preparation of presentations:

Each student must look up a new text which was not read and debated in class but which contributes to one of the topics of the class sessions. The new text should be looked up in the scholarly journals (through databases) or in the edited books by excellent publishers. The presentation should outline the main arguments of the new text and explain to which topic of the class lesson the new text feeds into and why.

It should have the following structure:

  • topic of the class session which the new text corresponds with
  • summary of the main arguments presented in the new text
  • explanation why the new text corresponds with the particular topic

Introductory 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.
