Communication Repertoires and Cultural Memory in Everyday Urban Life in Vietnam

November 29, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Talk by Christina Sanko

Visiting Scholar
Centre of Media, Communication and Information Research (ZeMKI)
University of Bremen, Germany

The talk presents PhD research on communica4ve processes within the Vietnamese urban population and how these forge the construc4on of cultural memory in everyday life. Informed by theore4cal approaches in memory (Erll 2011) and communica4on studies (van Dijck 2007), the project inves4gates par4cularly how media representa4ons, media prac4ces and interpersonal communica4on construct memories within and across different genera4ons (Mannheim 1959) in urban centres of Vietnam. In the talk, I discuss insights from four months fieldwork in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon), including methodology, software-assisted analysis of qualita4ve data and preliminary findings.
