Memory studies are a recent discipline, which has been officially established in 2008 with the publication of the first issue of the scientific journal Memory Studies. It is in fact a multi- and inter-discipline, which benefits from the contribution of several disciplines which focus on memory as both an investigation object and a research perspective, starting from different theoretical and methodological backgrounds as well as different thematic interests: history, sociology, anthropology, literature, law, culture theory, philosophy, psychology, media studies. 

After a successful first edition in 2023, a second seminar series will take place, monthly, from March to June and from October to December 2024, in the framework of the LIMS – Interdepartmental Lab Memory and Society of the University of Trento's activities. In each seminar, two scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds will discuss their research activities and scientific experiences revolving around memory: topics under discussion will range from cultural anthropology to the history of Judaism, from ancient philosophy to the history of maths, from museology to romance literature, from ancient to modern and contemporary history. 

The seminars are held in Italian and are thought of as informal roundtables aimed at triggering lively interdisciplinary debates, and are open to anyone interested. Advanced MA and PhD students in particular are warmly invited to join.
