Inquiry: Memory studies programs/departments/institutes?

Dear memory studies community,

Together with my colleague, Prof. Anamaria Dutceac-Segesten, I am working on a research project that investigates the status of memory studies as a field.

In this context, we would like to come up with a more or less comprehensive list of:

- MA or PhD programs in memory studies or closely allied topics

- memory studies departments

- memory studies institutes or research programs

- funding sources specifically targeting memory studies projects
