Anmeldelser

«Unique in its combination of creative and scholarly approaches to memory, this rich collection presents the cutting-edge of memory studies. Absolutely essential reading.»

Susanne C. Knittel, Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature, Utrecht University, Netherlands

«This important volume shows the diversity of contemporary cultural memory studies. It opens new avenues for the field by bringing together scholarly and artistic work in a way that invites us to reflect on the fluidity between fictional and theoretical approaches to cultural memory.»

Hanna Meretoja, Professor of Comparative Literature and Director of SELMA: Centre for the Study of S

«Brett Ashley Kaplan has put together an innovative and appealing collection that opens up a dynamic, multipronged vision of memory studies. With fiction and memoir placed side-by-side with essays by scholars, activists, and practitioners, Critical Memory Studies offers new directions for a field rapidly becoming institutionalized. Its global scope, interdisciplinary range, and attention to urgent areas of concern, such as ecology and race, make it a must read for all those concerned with the future of the past.»

Michael Rothberg, author of The Implicated Subject: Beyond Victims and Perpetrators

«Critical Memory Studies opens up a wide spectrum of new approaches to memory in culture. The essays collected in this anthology address a range of current challenges to memory – from racism and environmental degradation to monument wars and digital transformation. Critical Memory Studies demonstrates that what brings together scholars and practitioners from diverse backgrounds in the field of memory studies is their keen sense of the necessity and the possibilities of an ongoing critique of memory.»

Astrid Erll, Professor of Anglophone Literatures and Cultures, Goethe-University Frankfurt, Germany

«Engaging chapters ... This is an important book for those who work, teach, and conduct research within the field of memory studies.»
