Book Review: Borderlands of Memory: Adriatic and Central European Perspectives

Book Review: Borderlands of Memory: Adriatic and Central European Perspectives sBorderlands of Memory is the result of the international conference “Sites of Memory, Sites of Border” held at the Science and Research Center in Koper, Slovenia, in May 2017. As stated in the editor's introductory note, the central aim of the volume is to analyze various aspects of cultures of remembrance and memory politics in the Adriatic and Central European borderlands. In the editor's view, studies of memory have “rarely focused on border areas.” Thus, the chapters included in the volume address a critical lacuna of both memory and borderland studies. In other words, the common denominator of the chapters is the application of concepts and approaches of memory studies to the ethnically and linguistically diverse regions that have experienced political, social, and cultural turmoil since the late nineteenth century.sHannes Grandits addresses the general theme of the volume by describing how the concept of “phantom borders” could shed light on the importance of former administrative and state borders in local and state-sponsored mnemonic practices. By focusing on the representations of national character in public spaces in Trieste and Gorizia in the late Habsburg era, Marta Verginella draws attention to the asymmetrical relation between Italians and Slovenes in these two http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Austrian History Yearbook Cambridge University Press

Abstract

sBorderlands of Memory is the result of the international conference “Sites of Memory, Sites of Border” held at the Science and Research Center in Koper, Slovenia, in May 2017. As stated in the editor's introductory note, the central aim of the volume is to analyze various aspects of cultures of remembrance and memory politics in the Adriatic and Central European borderlands. In the editor's view, studies of memory have “rarely focused on border areas.” Thus, the chapters included in the volume address a critical lacuna of both memory and borderland studies. In other words, the common denominator of the chapters is the application of concepts and approaches of memory studies to the ethnically and linguistically diverse regions that have experienced political, social, and cultural turmoil since the late nineteenth century.sHannes Grandits addresses the general theme of the volume by describing how the concept of “phantom borders” could shed light on the importance of former administrative and state borders in local and state-sponsored mnemonic practices.
