Embodying Memory in Contemporary Spain

0 Comments 🕔09.Oct 2014

Embodying Memory in Contemporary Spain, by Alison Ribeiro de Menezes (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014).

This innovative book examines the emergence of a memory discourse in Spain since the millennium, taking as its point of departure recent grave exhumations and the “Law of Historical Memory.” The chapters focus on cultural products that interrogate the processes and pitfalls of traumatic remembrance. Through an analysis of exhumation photography, novels, films, television shows, and comics, the volume examines a substantial body of works in which there is a focus on overcoming the notion that Spanish history is pathological.
