Places of Memory takes a new look at spatialised practices of
remembrance and its role in reshaping societies from prehistory to
today, gathering researchers representing diverse but complementary
fields of expertise. This diachronic outlook provides important
insights into the great variety of human and social reactions
examining memory, encompassing aspects of remembering, the loss of
memory, reclaiming memories, and remembering things that may not have
happened. The contributions to this volume expand upon Pierre Nora’s
concept of lieux des memoire (places of memory) and the notion that
memory is not just stored in these places but activated through human
engagement. The volume presents a reflection on the creation of
memories through the organisation and use of landscapes and spaces
that explicitly considers the multiplicity of meanings of the past.
Thus, social identities were created, reaffirmed, strengthened, and
transformed through the founding, change, and reorganization of places
and spaces of memory in the cultural landscape.
