Over three days and sixty-five panel sessions, the 2017 NCSA conference will explore the ways in which nineteenth-century men and women sought to commemorate, preserve, and utilize personal and collective memories and histories. Topics will include civic commemorations, jubilees, holidays, public memorials, architectural changes, cemeteries, elegies, death rituals, photography, souvenirs, memoirs and autobiographies, and literary and artistic uses of the past. Papers will also analyze theoretical concepts of memory, invented traditions, and contested spaces, as well as interdisciplinary and alternate interpretations.
