There are few terms or concepts that have, in the last twenty or so years, rivaled "collective memory" for attention in the humanities and social sciences. Indeed, use of the term has extended far beyond scholarship to the realm of politics and journalism, where it has appeared in speeches atthe centers of power and on the front pages of the world's leading newspapers. The current efflorescence of interest in memory, however, is no mere passing fad: it is a hallmark characteristic of our age and a crucial site for understanding our present social, political, and cultural conditions.Scholars and others in numerous fields have thus employed the concept of collective memory, sociological in origin, to guide their inquiries into diverse, though allegedly connected, phenomena. Nevertheless, there remains a great deal of confusion about the meaning, origin, and implication of theterm and the field of inquiry it underwrites.The Collective Memory Reader presents, organizes, and evaluates past work and contemporary contributions on the questions raised under the rubric of collective memory. Combining seminal texts, hard-to-find classics, previously untranslated references, and contemporary landmarks, it will serve as anessential resource for teaching and research in the field. In addition, in both its selections as well as in its editorial materials, it suggests a novel life-story for the field, one that appreciates recent innovations but only against the background of a long history.In addition to its major editorial introduction, which outlines a useful past for contemporary memory studies, The Collective Memory Reader includes five sections - Precursors and Classics; History, Memory, and Identity; Power, Politics, and Contestation; Media and Modes of Transmission; Memory,Justice, and the Contemporary Epoch - comprising ninety-one texts. In addition to the essay introducing the entire volume, a brief editorial essay introduces each of the sections, while brief capsules frame each of the 91 texts.

Nevertheless, there remains a great deal of confusion about the meaning, origin, and implication of the term and the field of inquiry it underwrites. The Collective Memory Reader thus presents, organizes, and evaluates past work and provides essential materials for future research on the questions raised under the rubric of collective memory. Combining seminal texts, hard-to-find classics, previously untranslated materials, contemporary landmarks, as well as unusual extensions, it provides a foundational resource for teaching and research in the field, including wide-ranging reference points and exemplars from the vast literature. Most important, in both its selections as well in its editorial contributions, The Collective Memory Reader provides a novel life-story for the field, one that appreciates recent innovations but only against the background of a long history. In addition to its major editorial introduction, which outlines a useful past for contemporary memory studies, The Collective Memory Reader includes five sections--Precursors and Classics; History, Memory, and Identity; Power, Politics, and Contestation; Media and Modes of Transmission; Memory, Justice, and the Contemporary Epoch--comprising eighty-eight texts. In addition to the essay introducing the entire volume, a brief editorial essay introduces each of the sections, while brief capsules frame each of the 88 texts.

»Das Schwarz-Weiß-Foto eines Mädchens in dunklem Badeanzug auf einem Kieselstrand. Im Hintergrund eine Steilküste. Sie sitzt auf einem flachen Stein, die kräftigen Beine ausgestreckt, die Arme auf den Felsen gestützt, die Augen geschlossen, den Kopf leicht zur Seite geneigt. Sie lächelt. Ein dicker brauner Zopf fällt ihr über die Schulter, der andere verschwindet hinter ihrem Rücken. Offensichtlich imitiert sie die Pose der Filmstars aus Cinémonde oder aus der Werbung für Ambre-Solaire-Sonnenmilch und will so ihrem demütigend unreifen Kleinmädchenkörper entfliehen. Auf ihren Schenkeln und Oberarmen zeichnet sich der helle Abdruck eines Kleides ab, ein Hinweis darauf, dass ein Ausflug ans Meer für dieses Kind eine Seltenheit ist. Der Strand ist menschenleer. Auf der Rückseite: August 1949, Sotteville-sur-Mer.« Kindheit in der Nachkriegszeit, Algerienkrise, die Karriere an der Universität, das Schreiben, eine prekäre Ehe, die Mutterschaft, de Gaulle, das Jahr 1968, Krankheiten und Verluste, die so genannte Emanzipation der Frau, Frankreich unter Mitterrand, die Folgen der Globalisierung, die uneingelösten Verheißungen der Nullerjahre, das eigene Altern. Anhand von Fotografien, Erinnerungen und Aufzeichnungen, von Wörtern, Melodien und Gegenständen vergegenwärtigt Annie Ernaux die Jahre, die vergangen sind. Und dabei schreibt sie ihr Leben – unser Leben, das Leben – in eine völlig neuartige Erzählform ein, in eine kollektive, »unpersönliche Autobiographie«. Geschichte ihrer selbst, Gesellschaftsporträt, universelle Chronik: Annie Ernaux hat ein melancholisches Meisterwerk der Gedächtnisliteratur geschrieben und einen schillernden roman total.

Obwohl Effia und Esi Schwestern sind, lernen sie sich nie kennen, denn ihre Lebenswege verlaufen von Anfang an getrennt. Im Ghana des 18. Jahrhunderts heiratet Effia einen Engländer, der im Sklavenhandel zu Reichtum und Macht gelangt. Esi dagegen wird als Sklavin nach Amerika verkauft. Während Effias Nachkommen über Jahrhunderte Opfer oder Profiteure des Sklavenhandels werden, kämpfen Esis Kinder und Kindeskinder ums Überleben: auf den Plantagen der Südstaaten, während des Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieges, der Großen Migration, in den Kohleminen Alabamas und dann, im 20. Jahrhundert, in den Jazzclubs und Drogenhäusern Harlems. Hat die vorerst letzte Generation schließlich die Chance, einen Platz in der Gesellschaft zu finden, den sie Heimat nennen kann und wo man nicht als Menschen zweiter Klasse angesehen wird? Mit einer enormen erzählerischen Kraft zeichnet Yaa Gyasi die Wege der Frauen und ihrer Nachkommen über Generationen bis in die Gegenwart hinein. ›Heimkehren‹ ist ein bewegendes Stück Literatur von beeindruckender politischer Aktualität. New-York-Times-Bestseller Das Hörbuch erscheint am 4. August bei DAV, gelesen von 14 Sprecherinnen und Sprechern: Bibiana Beglau, Wanja Mues, Britta Steffenhagen, Götz Schubert, Johann von Bülow, Stefan Kaminski, Felix Goeser, Bjarne Mädel, Max Mauff, Rike Schmid, Jodie Ahlborn, Jule Böwe, Judith Engel, Lisa Wagner
