Product Overview

This work is a study of the various ways in which individuals and groups use memory narratives to express and form the quality of their lives. Activities of remembering, forgetting, reconstructing, metamorphosizing, and vicariously remembering are described for cultures in Latin America, Africa, Europe, Canada, and the United States. The authors find that the territory of memory is bounded by neither space nor time, but exists in the minds of individuals and groups. Memory changes as individuals and cultures change, forming a dialogue between the past and the present in response to present and changing needs. Memories of dislocation, war, torture, famine, and separation are given particular attention for the way they create meaning in the present and future lives of those who remember and share their memories. *Author: Teski, Marea C./ Climo, Jacob J. *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 232 *Publication Date: 1995/07/30 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.44 x 6.42 x 0.85 inches
