Religion & The Disciplines

Theology & Neuroscience

This seminar series aims to cultivate conversations between a range of academic disciplines and religious and theological inquiry.

While recognizing the importance of the study of religion, the series seeks to move in a different direction by taking seriously religious thought for carrying out conceptual and empirical work in other disciplinary contexts.

Rather than treating religion as merely the object of disciplinary inquiry, the seminars will explore such issues as the use of religious or theological categories for understanding a range of natural or social phenomenon.

The series will also tackle the methodological and epistemological challenges raised by this critical dialogue.

Book Launch of Dr Guy Beiner’s new book, Forgetful Remembrance: Social Forgetting and Vernacular Historiography of a Rebellion in Ulster (OUP, 2018)

All Welcome!

Irish Studies Postgraduate Workshop

Friday 25 January 10-11.30am in the Irish Studies Seminar Room, 27 University Square, First Floor, 01.003.

Dr Guy Beiner: ‘History and memory through the looking glass: When does forgetting begin?’

When does social forgetting begin? The sequence appears self-evident: first events are experienced, then they are remembered, and ultimately, they are forgotten. Hence, history is followed by memory, which wanes with time, so that, after due delay, forgetting sets in. On further thought, the notion of a neat linear succession may prove misleading. It could be argued that remembrance commences much earlier than is intuitively expected and that concerns of forgetting, though often unnoticed, may even be raised in advance of the unravelling of historical events.’ (Beiner, Forgetful Remembrance, p. 46).

In the workshop, we will work through this conundrum and try and put some order into the puzzling relationships that tie history to memory and forgetting. This will be done by introducing and unpacking the seemingly paradoxical concepts of ‘Prememory’ and ‘Pre-Forgetting’, which may prove to be useful tools for those interested in the study of commemoration and social remembrance.

Recommended preliminary reading: Guy Beiner, ‘Probing the Boundaries of Irish Memory: From Postmemory to Prememory and Back’ in Irish Historical Studies, 39, no. 154 (2014), pp 296-307.

All QUB postgrads and staff welcome.
