Remembering Without Really Remembering

Memories are often false or unreliable in some way or another – trauma is our inability to properly process those memories – but this doesn’t mean they are dishonest. These memories often hold more truth to our experiences than we realize.

Diasporic Memory: remembering without really remembering is the result of a workshop facilitated for Camille Isaac’s Diasporic Literature class in place of a book presentation for Ru by Kim Thúy. The workshop surrounded memory and how we remember. Participants discussed passages and explored prompts based on how memory was being explored. The results are specific to the participants’ experiences and full of beautiful insight.
