Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories
The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories at the University of Brighton fosters research excellence in modern cultural history and cultural memory studies.
The Centre's researchers investigate the complex relationships between past, present and future, foregrounding subordinate and marginalised history and memory in relation to official narrative, and focusing on questions of power, identity and experience.
The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories is committed to historical research that challenges social inequalities, oppressions and injustices, interrogates received meanings of the past, and produces alternative accounts that help to generate transformative thinking and politics.
Emphasising the plural 'histories', the interdisciplinary centre brings together researchers with related and complementary interests, providing a focus for research development and a platform for engagement with the wider academic community and partners working outside of higher education.
The Centre's research areas are enquiries into:
- Reparative histories: empire, ‘race’ and anticolonialism
- Visual culture, history and memory
- Medical histories, memories and narratives
- Transnational histories and memories
- The Northern Ireland Troubles: memories, afterlives and transformations of conflict
- Negotiating complex temporalities in post–conflict spaces
- Heritage in the twenty-first century
- History and cultural memory of twentieth-century world wars
- Community histories in Brighton and Hove and Sussex.
