Alserkal Avenue, Dubai's arts hub, presents its third annual summer programme, under the theme 'Sensing Memory'. The series of workshops, lectures, performances, and seminars draws from the UAE’s creative community and beyond to explore the connection between the senses and our personal and collective memories. As part of the season of free events, this two-hour lecture from Dr Maya Aghasi, Assistant Professor of Literature, American University of Sharjah, explores how we remember the past, especially how the descendants of those who experience war, genocide, and partition recall these traumatic historical events. Dr. Aghasi will discuss how such ‘inherited memory’ contributes to and shapes one’s identity, and the critical role imaginative fiction plays in keeping that memory alive. The talk considers literary and artistic examples from Palestine, the Armenian Genocide, dictatorship in the Dominican Republic, the India-Pakistan partition, and the 1975 Lebanese Civil War.
RSVP is recommended to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line 'Inherited Memory'.
