              Memory, Place and Identity: Commemoration and remembrance of war and conflict (Hardback)

              This book bridges theoretical gaps that exist between the meta-concepts of memory, place and identity by positioning its lens on the emplaced practices of commemoration and the remembrance of war and conflict. This book examines how diverse publics relate to their wartime histori...es through engagements with everyday collective memories, in differing places. Specifically addressing questions of place-making, displacement and identity, contributions shed new light on the processes of commemoration of war in everyday urban facades and within generations of families and national communities. Contributions seek to clarify how we connect with memories and places of war and conflict. The spatial and narrative manifestations of attempts to contextualise wartime memories of loss, trauma, conflict, victory and suffering are refracted through the roles played by emotion and identity construction in the shaping of post-war remembrances. This book offers a multidisciplinary perspective, with insights from history, memory studies, social psychology, cultural and urban geography, to contextualise memories of war and their 'use' by national governments, perpetrators, victims and in family histories.

              The Routledge Handbook of Memory and Place (Hardback)

              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.

              This book explores the idea that communities and social groups experience place through real and imagined facets in order to make sense of the world and the stories told therein. It seeks to join up the dots of the factual and imaginary that form affective networks of identities,... which in turn shape local memory, sense of self and community and sense of the past. It draws on the concept of make-believe spaces - in the environment, storytelling, and mnemonic narratives - as a social framework that aligns and informs the everyday memory worlds of communities. Drawing upon fieldwork in cultural heritage, community archaeology, social history and conflict history and anthropology, the book offers a methodological framework within which social groups may position and enact the multiple senses of place and senses of the past inhabited and performed in different cultural contexts. It offers a critical evaluation of heritage mapping as a tool to enable self-reflexive local participation in the negotiation and rehearsal of identities and senses of place, and argues that mapping visualises and `thickens' people's sense of the past.

              Seventy years after the end of the Second World War we still do not fully appreciate the intensity of the lived experience of people and communities involved in resistance movements and subjected to German occupation. Yet the enduring conjunction between individuals, things and p...lace cannot be understated: from plaques on the wall to the beloved yellowing relics of private museums, materiality is paramount to any understanding of conflict experience and its poetics. This book reasserts the role of the senses, the imagination and emotion in the Italian war experience and its remembrance practices by tracing a cultural geography of the everyday material worlds of the conflict, and by digging deep into the multifaceted interweaving of place, person and conflict dynamics. Loneliness, displacement and paranoia were all emotional states shared by resistance activists and their civilian supporters. But what about the Fascists? And the Germans? In a civil war and occupation where shifting allegiances and betrayal were frequent, traditional binary codes of friend-foe cannot exist uncritically. This book incorporates these different actors' perceptions, their competing and discordant materialities, and their shared - yet different - sense of loss and placelessness through witness accounts, storytelling and memoirs.
