Overview

Memory Cultures is an interdisciplinary collection that takes a journey through memory in order to contextualize this current "memory boom." International contributors focus on memories "outside" -in the many fields within which understandings of memory have been produced. The collection focuses less on memory as an object whose inner workings are to be studied, and more on memory as a concept, tracing genealogies of our contemporary Western understandings of memory through studies of the early modern arts of memory. The book also discusses nineteenth-century evolutionary museums, and the modernist explorations of artists and writers.
