Mark Your Calendars: USC to Hold Conference on 'Law & Memory'

This morning, the Legal History Blog posted an announcement for a conference to be held at USC Law School in February. The subject of the conference: Law & Memory.

Having read the announcement, I'm still not sure exactly what that means. Take a look at some of the sessions that will be a part of the conference:

  • War, Time, and Memory
  • Trials, Narrative and Memory
  • Property and Memory
  • Trauma and Oblivion (my favorite)

So, apparently they won't be focusing on how to avoid forgetting everything you study in preparation for the bar exam the minute you walk out the door.

The conference is sponsored by USC's Center for Law, History, and Culture, which bills itself as being "devoted to encouraging the study of law as an historical and cultural institution." If any readers are planning on going to the conference -- or can shed any light on the Law & Memory movement -- hit the comments.
