Collective Memories in War, Hardback Book

Description

This edited collection offers an empirical exploration of social memory in the context of politics, war, identity and culture.

With a substantive focus on Eastern Europe, it employs the methodologies of visual studies, content and discourse analysis, in-depth interviews and surveys to substantiate how memory narratives are composed and rewritten in changing ideological and political contexts.

The book examines various historical events, including the Russian-Afghan war of 1979-89 and World War II, and considers public and local rituals, monuments and museums, textbook accounts, gender and the body.

As such it provides a rich picture of post-socialist memory construction and function based in interdisciplinary memory studies.
