Hannah Jung Receives Research Grant from the Centre for Memory and Testimony Studies
CAST student Hannah Jung (class of 2014) received a competitive research grant to create a digital map of memory sites in the Grand River region of southern Ontario. The grant was awarded by the Centre for Memory and Testimony Studies (CMTS), a university-based research centre at Wilfrid Laurier University founded in January 2013.
Hannah’s project will entail researching and mapping spaces relevant to the representation of social and cultural memory in the region. It will entail the compilation and presentation of both official sites of memory and, most especially, those spaces that have been marginalized in official History.
Hannah will present the fruits of her research at the First International Summer workshop on “Memory and Testimony” organized by CMTS and its international partners: Museum of Exile (Catalonia, Spain), Memorial de Rivesaltes (France), Université de Perpignan (France), University of Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain). The workshop will be held at the Museum of Exile, July 3-5, 2014.
Her grant comes in the form of a $2,500 research honorarium, plus flight and travel expenses enabling her to present her research at the conference in Spain.
