in cooperation with the Biblioteca di storia moderna e contemporanea and the Istituto centrale per i beni sonori e audiovisivi
XV Symposium of the Scientific observatory of the written, oral and filmic memory and of the autobiographical patrimony
Auto/biography: its telescopic and temporal dimensions
Monday, June 27- Tuesday, June 28 2016 Palazzo Antici Mattei, Rome, Italy
The topic chosen by the Scientific Observatory of the written, oral and filmic memory and of the autobiographical patrimony for the next upcoming 2016 Symposium is regarding Auto/biography: its telescopic and temporal dimensions.Which linguistic modalities, which spacial and temporal perspectives give meaning to the past within the autobiographical narrations? How do famous or common people structure in their autobiographies the relation between the time of the narration and the time of the event? How is that memory brought back?
Into the autobiographical memories of scientists for example, the outcome of the research correlates strongly with all previous paths. And in the history of visual arts, the past has frequently been dressed up with present appearances. The key question of this call is to analyse how the narrating subject makes his/her self-narration truthful, which modalities and which rhetorical tools are exploited in the here and now.
