Module Overview:

The unit starts with an introduction to the theme of memory. Different types of memory are discussed, as well as the important question of the relationship between memory and media. The second theme concerns the intersection of memory and intercultural relations. Topics covered are: cultural myths and traditions; migrant nostalgia and acculturation; and the impact of memory of past conflictual intercultural relations. The third theme is mediation as a means of conflict resolution/transformation. Students will be taught an approach to mediation practice which incorporates an intercultural thinking and memory orientation, problem-solving, transformative goals, and narrative and interactive elements. The unit includes both theoretical and practical components: as well as discussing theoretical readings, students will undertake role plays in order to develop their practical skills in mediation.
