Ghosts of home : the afterlife of Czernowitz in Jewish memory by Marianne Hirsch( )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In modern-day Ukraine, east of the Carpathian Mountains, there is an invisible city. Known as Czernowitz, the "Vienna of the East" under the Habsburg empire, this vibrant Jewish-German Eastern European culture vanished after World War II-yet an idealized version lives on, suspended in the memories of its dispersed people and passed down to their children like a precious and haunted heirloom. In this original blend of history and communal memoir, Marianne Hirsch and Leo Spitzer chronicle the city's survival in personal, familial, and cultural memory. They find evidence of a cosmopolitan culture of nostalgic lore-but also of oppression, shattered promises, and shadows of the Holocaust in Romania. Hirsch and Spitzer present the first historical account of Jewish Czernowitz in the English language and offer a profound analysis of memory's echo across generations

Conflicts in Feminism proposes new strategies for negotiating and practicing conflict in feminism. Noted scholars and writers examine the most critically divisive issues within feminism today with sensitivity to all sides of the debates. By analyzing how the debates have worked for and against feminism, and by promoting dialogue across a variety of contexts, these provocative essays explore the roots of divisiveness while articulating new models for a productive discourse of difference
Time and the literary by Karen Newman( )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The immediacy of information technology has supposedly annihilated time and the literary. Email, cell phones, satellite broadcasting seem to have ended the long-standing tradition of encoding our experience of time through writing. Paul de Man's seminal essay "Literary History and Literary Modernity" and newly commissioned essays on everything from the human genome to grammatical tenses argue, however, that the literary constantly reconstructs our understanding of time. From eleventh-century France to a science-fiction future, this volume shows how these two concepts influence each other
Rites of return : diaspora poetics and the politics of memory( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first decade of the twenty-first century has witnessed a passionate engagement with the losses of the past. Rites of Return examines the widespread effects of a legacy of historical injustice and documented suffering on the politics of the present. This collection of original essays devoted to feminist diasporic studies maps bold and broad-based responses to past injury across Eastern Europe, Africa, Latin America, Australia, the Middle East, and the United States. It examines new technologies of genetic and genealogical research, memoirs about lost family histories, the populari
Family frames : photography, narrative, and postmemory by Marianne Hirsch( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hirsch provocatively explores the photographic conventions for constructing family relationships and discusses artistic strategies for challenging those constructions. When we capture our family photographically, we are often responding to an idealized image. Contemporary artists and writers, Hirsch shows, have exposed the gap between lived reality and a perceived ideal to witness contradictions that shape visual representations of parents and children, siblings, lovers, or extended families. Exploring fiction, "imagetexts," and photographic essays, she elucidates their subversive devices, giving particular attention to literal and metaphorical masks. While permitting false impressions and misreadings, family photos have also proved a powerful means for shaping personal and cultural memory. Hirsch highlights a striking example: a wide variety of family pictures surviving the Holocaust and the wrenching displacements of late twentieth-century history. Whether personal treasures, artistic constructions, or museum installations, these images link private memory to collective history."--Jacket
The Generation of postmemory : writing and visual culture after the Holocaust by Marianne Hirsch( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can we remember other people's memories? The Generation of Postmemory argues we can: that memories of traumatic events live on to mark the lives of those who were not there to experience them. Children of survivors and their contemporaries inherit catastrophic histories not through direct recollection but through haunting postmemories-multiply mediated images, objects, stories, behaviors, and affects passed down within the family and the culture at large. In these new and revised critical readings of the literary and visual legacies of the Holocaust and other, related sites

"'Mediations' by the American photographer Susan Meiselas proposes a selection of works from the 1970s to today, revealing Meiselas's special approach to the underlying reasons for making photographs, how the image concerns its subject as much as the photographer, and the role that these images can have at different levels in society and particularly in photojournalism."
