The Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories was discontinued in 2023, following, from its founding in 2008, a significant history of investigations into the complex relationships between past, present and future, foregrounding subordinate and marginalised history and memory in relation to official narrative, and focusing on questions of power, identity and experience.

The archive of the centre’s many years of seminars, conferences and initiatives is available on this blogsite.

The University of Brighton’s research and knowledge exchange across these aspects of the humanities, including history, political relationships, life-writing, public and institutional memory, literary history, film history as well as art and design history continues to be a thriving aspect of our work. Current achievements in this area can be seen on our research database for the School of Humanities and Social Sciences.
