In recent years memory has attracted increasing attention. From analyses of electronic communication and the Internet to discussions of heritage culture, to debates about victimhood and sexual abuse, memory is currently generating much cultural interest. This interdisciplinary collection takes a journey through memory in order to contextualise this current 'memory boom'.
Regimes of Memory focuses on memory's 'outside'
Individual essays by many of the foremost international scholars in memory studies trace memory's intimate association with identity and recognition, with cities, with lived time, with the science of the mind, with fantasy and with the media. The difference between western and non-western concepts of memory is also explored and the importance of contemporary western preoccupations with memory to western ideas of history, identity, and the relation between the personal and public is demonstrated.
Regimes of Memory will be of essential interest to those working in the fields of Cultural Studies, History and also Anthropology.
