Theories of Memory: A Reader
Theories of Memory provides a comprehensive introduction to the rapidly expanding field of memory studies.
It is a resource through which students will be able both to broaden their knowledge of contemporary theoretical perspectives and trace the development of ideas about memory from the classical period to the present.
The Reader is organised into three parts:
- Part 1, Beginnings: Classical and Early Modern Ideas of Memory, Enlightenment and Romantic Memory, and Memory and Late Modernity;
- Part 2, Positionings: Collective Memory, Jewish Memory Discourse, and Trauma;
- Part 3, Identities: Gender, Race/Nation, and Diaspora.
Praise for Theories of Memory:
This Reader does a superb job in defining and presenting some of the most interesting work currently being done on the forms and the uses of personal and historical memory.PROFESSOR JOHN FROW, UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE
