Memory + Souvenirs

The broad subject of memory studies is fascinating whether it be the personal recollection and understanding; the complexities of cultural interpretations; or object manifestations. Deborah’s current work embraces all of these aspects whether it is in research, collecting or reinterpretation. It covers souvenirs, the sinister and the exploration of grief in Filling the Void.

She is the co-editor, with Dr Stephen Wilson, of Memories of the Future: On Countervision published by Peter Lang in May 2017.

Deborah Jaffé is an author; cultural and design historian; ceramicist and painter with special interests in the history of souvenirs and memory studies; women and innovation; childhood, play and toys.
