Centre for Research in Cultural Studies

Angela Failler

The current Director of CRiCS is Dr. Angela Failler, UWinnipeg’s Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Culture and Public Memory. Failler is Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies, and teaches for the MA Program in Cultural Studies. She also currently leads the Cultural Studies Research Group. Her research is focused on how practices of culture and public memory are used to grapple with the “difficult knowledge” of historical traumas and injustices, including their ongoing/after effects. Her projects pay special attention to memorials, museums, commemorative artworks, community-based practices of remembrance, and government sponsored memory projects. She employs interdisciplinary, collaborative methodologies that draw on the expertise of scholars, educators, artists, curators, and other cultural practitioners.
