Literature and Memory Studies—an elective in the Department of English for
both AB and MA levels since 2012—is a course which examines fiction by
local and diasporic authors through the lens of Memory Studies.  At its
core, the discussions aim to trace contending and complementary relations
between literature and memory, especially with regard to its cultural,
collective, and social dimensions.

Starting school year 2015-2016—under the initiative the AB Literature
(English) programme, AdMU—Literature and Memory Studies will be taught as
an interdisciplinary programme. Aside from regular classes taught by Dr.
Jocelyn Martin, the course features four guest lecturers, each with his or
her own specialisation: translation and cultural memory; the Holocaust in
Philippine history; museum studies; and Martial Law. The titles of the
lectures, as well as the schedules and venues, are in the list below. The
lectures are open to the public.
