Media Constructions of National and Transnational History
This book provides insight into the medial constructions of remembrance, which go hand in hand with transnational, national, or nationalistic forms of politics. Authors from post-Yugoslavia and other countries focus on the diverse transnational and national memory cultures in South-Eastern Europe, their interference, and rivalry. They inquire into constructions of memory in different media from the nineteenth century to the recent wars. These involve longue durée, breaks and gaps, selection and suppression, traumatic events and the loss of memory, nostalgia, false memory, reactivation, rituals, and traces of memory.
