Mnemosyne

By IRW Rutgers
Mnemosyne is the Greek Goddess of memory. As a Goddess archetype, she reminds us of the importance of sharing stories. She represents memory as the pivotal point of creativity and life. It is in this spirit that we dare to remember. Mnemosyne is a space for feminist storytelling, where we center conversations about feminist work and research across disciplines. The podcast series is hosted by Andrea Zerpa and Ameena Qobrtay.
