This Handbook explores the latest cross-disciplinary research on the inter-relationship between memory studies, place and identity. In the works of dynamic memory, there is room for multiple stories, versions of the past and place understandings and often resistance to mainstream... narratives. Places may live on long after their physical destruction. This collection provides insights into the significant and diverse role memory plays in our understanding of the world around us, in a variety of spaces and temporalities and through a variety of disciplinary and professional lenses. Many of the chapters in this Handbook explore place-making, its significance in everyday lives, and its loss. Processes of displacement, where people's place attachments are violently torn asunder are also considered. Ranging from oral history to forensic anthropology, from folklore studies to cultural geographies and beyond, the essays in this Handbook reveal multiple and often unexpected facets of the fascinating relationship between place and memory, from the individual to the collective. This is a multi- and intra-disciplinary collection of the latest and most influential approaches to the interwoven and dynamic issues of place and memory. It will be of great use to researchers and academics working across Geography, Tourism, Heritage, Anthropology and Archeology.Read more
