Social Memory and Cultural Heritage

The Graduate Program on Social Memory and Cultural Heritage adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the study of memory and cultural heritage in order to provide our students with a complex and multifaceted grasp of the issues related to social memory. We understand Social Memory and Cultural Heritage as a field from which one can think about the relations between memory and a myriad of related topics, such as culture, identity, language, space and social representations, education and cultural heritage (material, immaterial and natural); production, circulation, appropriation and social uses of cultural goods (material, immaterial and natural); information and communication. We conduct studies on the plurality of cultures and memories; on the different spaces and places of memory, approaching cultural heritage in an integral perspective; and on the relations between social and economic development based on the ethical and responsible use of cultural goods. The creation of our Graduate Program at La Salle University, in 2008, resulted from the work and experiences of the research group on Memory, Culture and Identity. Additionally, we also respond to the demands of the social and cultural insertion of our University in its local, regional, and national contexts, and have a deep interconnection with our surrounding community.
