Mourning and melodrama in Para que no me olvides (2005) by Patricia Ferreira
Isolina Ballesteros

Coinciding with the excavations of the Spanish Civil War’s mass graves (that began in 2000) film and the mass media are playing a crucial role in the construction and dissemination of ‘spaces of memory’ of the war that intend to compensate for the willed amnesia that characterised both the Franco dictatorship and the post-Franco years. 1 Spanish women filmmakers are documenting this public

7 Moving memories, 1970–2009 ‘Remembrance Tour: Toulouse the capital of [sic] Spanish Republican Exile’, read the caption of a tourist map leaflet produced by Toulouse City Council in 2009. In June of the same year, the seventieth anniversary celebrations of the Retirada included the inauguration of a plaque reciprocating the map’s slogan and the dedication of a stretch of river as ‘The Spanish Republican Exile Quay’. The following day the local newspaper reported: ‘the City of Toulouse has made a symbolic and powerful gesture towards the former Spanish exiles

Chapter 8 Seditious memories across generations T hrough speech, writing, and mis-commemoration, people from across the Stuart realms articulated opinions about the civil wars and revolutions that were deemed by the authorities to be seditious and unlawful. The risks taken to articulate these views connote the degree to which certain political and religious identities were bound up with a sense that various aspects of opposition to, and resistance against, the Crown and established church had been legitimate. And yet some of the Parliamentarian and republican

memory and the future 95 5 1 Memory and the future Imaginations of socially just futures for humans usually take the idea of single, homogenous, secure historical time for granted. – Dipesh Chakrabarty2 Studies of processes and practices of memory explore how people respond to events in the past: how they remember, forget, account for, forgive, memorialise, or commemorate what has happened, and, often, how the way in which they do so produces, reproduces or challenges certain forms of politics or certain specific political structures and systems located in

occasions. (Paula González Seguel) It is not easy to address the experience of collective and creative work within MapsUrbe. The Collective was conceived as an exercise in the discovery of Mapuche memories and identities in the city of Santiago, based on David Aniñir’s work, Mapurbe . However, on a personal level, it also implied an exercise in mnemonic openness, as well as academic and sentimental socialisation. This piece seeks to reflect on the meanings entailed

13 Time and memory And now, as I gradually found myself being pulled into the huge, slowly rotating crowd of dancers by the cotton tree, I recalled Mr Mann’s story of Columbus and Sir Francis Drake and the two Elizabeths who were actually one, the Africans who were both slave and warrior, and I realized that I had misunderstood him completely: I had thought he was making history up. It hadn’t occurred to me that he had been telling the truth. (Banks 1980: 126) In reggae music, one is able to observe memory at work. The words of the music transmit a memory of

Its concern was with how the mnemonic life of individuals is shaped by its immediate social contexts, and with how this shaping is related to the development and maintenance of mnemonic cultures in relatively small-scale social groups – families or monastic communities, rather than nations or the universal church.

3 Memory as border work: the 2008 Italy–Libya Friendship Treaty and the reassembling of Fortress Europe Chiara De Cesari A border is made real through imagination. (Van Houtum 2012: 412) In this chapter, I examine one peculiar border zone, namely the Mediterranean Sea – and more precisely that stretch of sea extending between Italy and Libya – in order to explore how memory-making contributes to its re-bordering. The cemetery of an astonishing and growing number of migrants and asylum seekers, this stretch of sea has become a symbol of Fortress Europe and of

what he rejects in others. Indeed, if his ideas echo the sentiments that underwrote memories of the Anglo-Scandinavian Middle Ages, they also share some qualities with the ones he reviles. One of the things that motivated Tacitus, and something of particular interest to Himmler and other Nazis, was a sense that Rome had become weak and debased. By imaginatively confederating a diverse group of tribes into the Germanic people, Tacitus could set them off as constitutionally different from the citizens of Rome. In effect, he imagined Germanic ethnicity and so allowed
