Meet us at MSA annual conference!

Meet us at MSA annual conference!

Halfway through the MSA and need a bit of downtime? Join us to make your own fabric bag and learn something about the Slow Memory COST Action.

July 05, 14:00 – 15:30, Room USB G.003

In the Slow Memory project, we consider how we may grasp the meaning of “slow” processes, remember slowly, and study slow remembrance without feeling too much time pressure. Members of the core group of the Action will introduce our Working Groups (on work, welfare, politics, conflict, the environment, capacity- building, and communication) and invite participants to talk about their own research.

While we chat, we will be making fabric bags with stamps and markers, so if you just need some time to decompress, please do come for that!

With Jenny Wüstenberg, Joanna Wawrzyniak, Sara Dybris McQuaid, Vjollca Krasniqi, Hanna Teichler, Stef Craps, Orli Fridman, Sara Jones and others
