About the Presentation

According to Maurice Halbwachs, individual memories of events of strong or weak social cohesion are to be understood as objects of collective memory. If this collective memory in its relation to groups and interactions can still be understood as communicative memory, it is transformed into permanent, cultural memory through its documentation. This documentation work is carried out by memory agents, especially journalists, who thus become, among other things, actors in the politics of memory. Therefore, the question arises how media work and consumption contribute to remembering and experiencing cohesion in local societies. The Lunch Talk will approach this question with new data from the FGZ regional panel.

About the Speaker

Jakob Hartl graduated from the University of Vienna with a degree in sociology, philosophy and politics and obtained a PhD from the University of Bristol in 2020 for his thesis on the political implications of young people’s experiences of precarisation. Since 2021, he is a research fellow at the Research Institute Social Cohesion (RISC) in Halle (Saale). His research focus lies on the multi-method intersections of social structures and memory structures as well as on the politics of social inequality, particularly from a spatial perspective.
