age cohort of people. They have a sense of themselves and other people have a sense of them as ‘a generation’. The ‘baby boomers’ in post-war America and the ‘1968 generation’ in Europe are examples. Millennials across the developed world are another. For Mannheim, generational memory is shaped by pivotal, public, ‘transformative events’ during a ‘critical period’. Previous research on Israeli collective memory bears this out. It showed that age cohorts placed most emphasis on the pivotal events they experienced during their youth. The Holocaust was an exception

myself in in the Brooklyn Museum, then hosting a retrospective exhibition of Lee Krasner curated by the art historian Robert Hobbs. The show was just about to complete its four-venue tour, which had started at the Los Angeles County Museum on 10 October 1999. I visited the show early on a Saturday morning. My abiding, and melancholy, memory is the sound of my own solitary footsteps on the wooden floors, echoing through the otherwise empty galleries. (It was the last few days of a show that had opened there on 6 October 2000

From Vietnam to the war in the Persian Gulf
John Storey

In this chapter I want to explore, within a context of culture and power, the complex relations between memory and desire. 1 More specifically, I want to connect 1980s Hollywood representations of America’s war in Vietnam (what I will call ‘Hollywood’s Vietnam’) with George Bush’s campaign, in late 1990 and early 1991, to win support for US involvement

Events, experiences and personalities that have left an impact in people’s thinking get incorporated into narratives or organized accounts of the society’s or the nation’s past. Some of these accounts prove ephemeral, others durable; some acquire

4 The construction of a musical memory The history of reggae music is long and complex and, in reference to a common expression within reggae and the Rastafari movement, “half the story has never been told.” In opposition to other scholars who describe it in terms of a linear evolution stemming from one source, and hence consider each new development as the extension or direct product of the preceding one, Bilby argues that Jamaican music “has evolved in a considerably more disorderly manner than this and has always been stylistically more heterogeneous and

Chapter 2 Locating seditious memories in England and Wales S tudies of how the civil wars and revolution were remembered after the Restoration in England and Wales have tended to focus on retrospective hostility, and how this was marshalled as a means of discrediting forms of political and religious dissent. This chapter differs from these portrayals of the mnemonic landscape after the Restoration by highlighting alternative opinions about the 1640s and 1650s. It does so by largely eschewing print culture as an accurate measure of the full range of opinions

Memory and temporality in Hidden Symptoms, One by One in the Darkness, and Time Present and Time Past
Stefanie Lehner

As Helen Dunmore astutely observes in her review of Time Present and Time Past ( 2013 ), Deirdre Madden’s works ‘have long been saturated with ideas of memory’s relationship to time’ ( Dunmore, 2013 ). Akin to T. S. Eliot, in the fragment from ‘Burnt Norton’ that Madden uses as the epigraph to this novel, her fiction offers ‘a world of

Chapter 3 The politics of memory after the Restoration I n legal records and government papers, we can identify sympathies for Parliament and the Republic which survived the restoration of Charles II and which endured well into the 1680s. The threat posed by these opinions does not regularly tally with the government’s anxieties about the legacy of what was, by its estimation, seditious or treasonable intent. Given the risks, then, why did individuals express these views? In subsequent chapters, this question is answered by reading evidence of seditious

attitudes to gender and sexuality sit strangely with Robinson's apparent enthusiasm for the ideals of punk rock and for Hooley, who prior to his role in the punk scene had been a fixture in the hippy demi-monde of 1960s Belfast, and known as much for his diverse hedonistic enthusiasms as for his anti-establishment world view. But we can see an important facet of the dominant popular memory narrative of punk in the North in Robinson's speech. For the mayor, punk is understood as a fundamentally entrepreneurial endeavour, in which
