This panel explores how the past is remembered and negotiated through Asian media from different geographical and theoretical perspectives. It examines the political implications of memories made through practices of local filmmaking, animation, nonlinearity and fan negotiation. In the context of East and Southeast Asia, the papers explore these practices in relation to the revision of history, the shaping of memory, the questioning of dominant discourses and the memorialisation of own experiences. Through these papers, the authors explore how mediated memories are constructed, read and appropriated in different national contexts and by doing so propose an overview of how memory is negotiated through Asian media more globally.
