Inhaltsangabe: We remember the past in a number of different ways, some of which we can barely describe. But we talk about the past in more specific social contexts, at home, at work, in the bar, reminiscing about past experience or narrating past events with specific groups of family friends and colleagues. How people talk about the past helps define their identity. In this book the perspective, the philosophy and the psychology of remembering and the ways in which events are narrated are used to help work out how remembering and talking define societies in circumstances as diverse as medieval France and Iceland and contemporary Brazil and South Wales.
Klappentext: In this book, an anthropologist and an historian investigate the role of memory in the interpretation and reconstruction of the past. Variation and change in historical legends, fairy tales and myths, in the writing of history itself, reflect moral and political points of view that are distinctive of time and place. Equally revealing are the things different groups choose to commemorate: in the Cevenne region of southern France, popular consciousness is still structured by memories of the Camisard wars of the eighteenth century, while perceptions of the recent past among the miners of Yorkshire and South Wales are structured by the memory of the strikes in the 1970s and 1980s, in turn mediated by the memories and tales of earlier struggles. The authors contrast local and national memory and consider how far each may be consciously constructed or manipulated for ideological or political ends.
Ranging from the writings of the Grimm brothers to Gregory of Tours, from accounts of the career of Charlemagne and the Icelandic sagas to the uses of the past in sub-Saharan Africa and among the Sicilian mafia, the authors examine the powerful workings of memory. Conformation to the facts is shown frequently to be less relevant than the needs of different communities to validate belief and to justify the present. The operation of social memory is above all creative: understanding how this is so, as this book ably demonstrates, provides considerable insights on human culture and society now and in the past.
