Title: Social Memory


1
Social Memory
  • By James Fentress and Chris Wickham
  • Presented by Leslie Norman / Meghan Vacca

2
Chapter 1 Remembrance
  • To explore how memory functions.
  • To explore the way historians and social
    scientists have regarded memory and used it and
    to suggest different ways social memory can be
    better appreciated.

3
  • Memory becomes social once structure has been
    given to it and it is articulated.
  • Memory has a mixed character between personal and
    social thus it is social memory. As such it is
    more subjective because of the sharing factor
    involved.

  • Knowledge vs. Remembering
  • We can know something without being able to
    remember it. (pg. 4)
  • We can know how memory facilitates knowledge by
    asking what constitutes the experience of memory.

  • (Death to the French, Italy is yearning!)

8
