Collection and Commemoration: Slavery in Sight and Memory
Thu. 10 October 2013 | 12 Noon - 1:30 PM
Nicole Willson from UEA will be presenting a talk entitled Collection and Commemoration: Slavery in Sight and Memory.
This talk looks at visual representations of slavery in museums and memorial sites across the United Kingdom. It considers the unseen and the unsaid in such commemorative spaces and addresses the idea that the practice of memorialisation is twinned with forgetting. Contemplating the evolution of museological practice from the birth of the modern museum in the eighteenth century, it also ponders whether such practices can offer restitution and for whom, if they do, this restitution serves.
