ABOUT US

memento, n. from Latin mementō, imperative form of meminisse, to remember

In this time of ephemerality and disappearance, our pyrocene age of flames, pandemics, financial contraction, dispossession, vulnerability, and supremacy, we propose a decolonial enterprise in the critical humanities.  Memento imagines a Dartmouth undergraduate community oriented around the craft of critical writing as cultural critique; collective editing as a remembrance and reflection of our shared political and ethic world (Hannah Arendt); art shaping time into something other than itself (Zadie Smith); and a journal without a homeland in which editors and writers can set up house (Theodor Adorno).  At once a memory and recollection, a reverie and daydream, Memento pays tribute to our intellectual gleanings at Dartmouth while curating alternatives to siloed disciplinary knowledge to make structures quiver and speak truth to power.
