Memory and political change by Prof Aleida Assmann( file )
14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
While it is well-known that memory is open to constant changes and transformations, this book adopts an innovative approach, emphasizing memory's role as a powerful agent of change. While political systems may change comparatively quickly, the social and cultural processes of adaptation and transformation take considerably longer. This volume explores memory as both a medium of and an impediment to change, offering an inroad into the problems, mechanisms and patterns involved in the complex processes that accompany the transition from authoritarian to democratic structures. Written by authors from different cultural and disciplinary backgrounds, the essays chart the terrain andsupply well-documented case studiesto extend knowledge on the relationship between social and political memory and the transition process
German narratives of belonging. Writing generation and place in the twenty-first century by Linda Shortt( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Since unification, German culture has experienced a boom in discourses on generation, family and place. Linda Shortt reads this as symptomatic of a wider quest for belonging that mobilises attachment to counter the effects of post-modern deterritorialisation and globalisation. Investigating twenty-first century narratives of belonging by Reinhard Jirgl, Christoph Hein, Angelika Overath, Florian Illies, Juli Zeh, Stephan Wackwitz, Uwe Timm and Peter Schneider, Shortt examines how the desire to belong is repeatedly unsettled by disturbances of lineage and tradition. In this way, she combines an analysis of supermodernity with an enquiry into German memory contests on the National Socialist era, 1968 and 1989 that continue to shape identity in the Berlin Republic. Exploring a spectrum of narratives that range from agitated disavowals of place to romances of belonging, this study illuminates the topography of belonging in contemporary Germany
