Center for Memory and Testimony Studies
The Center for Memory and Testimony Studies (CMTS) at Wilfrid Laurier University Toronto, Canada, seeks to undertake comparative explorations of how memory and its counterpart, forgetting, are represented in Canada and how these approaches compare with other researches, artistic representations and investigations undertaken in other cultural and geographic spaces.
As a point of contact for scholars from different cultural milieus, CMTS plans to foster a diverse array of activities such as scholarly conferences, workshops, art exhibits, and academic publications. By studying testimonies and memory from diverse geographical and political contexts in conjunction with one another, CMTS seeks to stimulate comparative analyses that explore the forms, modes, and languages through which memory and testimony take shape in our societies and cultures.
