Memory Traces: 1989 and the Question of German Cultural Identity
Series: Cultural History and Literary Imagination Vol. 5
This essay collection examines the dynamics of memory organisation and the way it varies across different media and modes of discourse (including poetry) in post-Wende Germany. German unification put the post-war period into historical perspective and raised questions concerning the appropriate commemoration, preservation and reinterpretation of the past.
