Memory Connection Volume 3 is a combination of selected papers developed
into articles from the 2015 Triggering Memory symposium (Wellington, NZ) and the
2016 Memory Works symposium (New York, US). Both these symposia were part
of a broader interdisciplinary and international consortium known as The Memory
Waka, which began in 2008. Throughout the journey of the consortium a focus on
the connection between the artistic, cultural, and rhetorical practices of memory
has emerged. The two symposia that provided the articles collected here attended
to two important dimensions of this connection: the effects of bringing forth,
or triggering, memories; and, the kind of work done by, in, and through these
memories once brought forth.
