What is re-enactment and how does it relate to heritage? Re-enactments are a ubiquitous part of popular and memory culture and are of growing importance to heritage studies. As concept and practice, re-enactments encompass a wide range of forms: from the annual ‘Viking Moot’ festival in Denmark drawing thousands of participants and spectators, to the (re)staged war photography of An-My Lê, to the Titanic Memorial Cruise commemorating the centennial of the ill-fated voyage, to the symbolic retracing of the Berlin Wall across the city on 9 November 2014 to mark the 25th anniversary of its toppling. Re-enactments involve the sensuousness of bodily experience and engagement, the exhilarating yet precarious combination of imagination with ‘historical fact’, in-the-moment negotiations between and within temporalities, and the compelling drive to re-make, or re-presence, the past. As such, re-enactments present a number of challenges to traditional understandings of heritage, including taken-for-granted assumptions regarding fixity, conservation, originality, ownership and authenticity. Using a variety of international, cross-disciplinary case studies, this volume explores re-enactment as practice, problem, and/or potential, in order to widen the scope of heritage thinking and analysis toward impermanence, performance, flux, innovation and creativity. This book was originally published as a special issue of the International Journal of Heritage Studies.

How and why did modern historiography take on its present form? Re-enacting the Past addresses the problem in England by looking at some of the ways that the Renaissance and the Reformation affected writing and thinking about history, and left a legacy to modern historiography. Professor Levine concentrates on how neoclassicism in the early modern period both reflected and shaped the English use and understanding of the past. At the same time he shows how religious controversies were also engendering a deepening recourse to history and a new sophistication about historical evidence. By the end of the 18th century, convictions in an ancient perennial wisdom and in the Bible as literal history had been thoroughly challenged and a truly modern historiography was largely in place. Levine concludes with a set of essays about some contemporary views of history, disputing with Quentin Skinner, Peter Novick and Thomas Kuhn, while extolling the virtues of R.G. Collingwood.

A central motif of R. G. Collingwood's philosophy of history is the idea that historical understanding requires a re-enactment of past experience. However, there have been sharp disagreements about the acceptability of this idea, and even its meaning. This book aims to advance the critical discussion in three ways: by analysing the idea itself further, concentrating especially on the contrast which Collingwood drew between it and scientific understanding; by exploring the limits of its applicability to what historians ordinarily consider their proper subject-matter; and by clarifying the relationship between it and some other key Collingwoodian ideas, such as the place of imagination in historical inquiry, the sense in which history deals with the individual, the essential perspectivity of historical judgement, and the importance of narrative and periodization in historical thinking. Professor Dray defends Collingwood against a good deal of recent criticism, while pointing toways in which his position requires revision or development. History as Re-enactment draws upon a wide range of Collingwood's published writings, and makes considerable use of his unpublished manuscripts. It is the most systematic study yet of this central doctrine of Collingwood's philosophy of history, and will stand as a landmark in Collingwood studies. 'For many years William Dray has been working at the task of retrieving Collingwood for contemporary philosophy. . . . It is something of an event then to have this new work, the culmination of a lifetime of thought, appear in his retirement. As one would expect, it is a deeply considered book, lucidly written, and scrupulously fair to all parties . . . a sound and serious philosophical commentary . . . anyone interested in either Collingwood or the philosophy of history should consider joining the dialogue and will learn much in the process.'

It Is Widely Acknowledged That An Idea Expressed In One Language, If Translated Into Another, Its Meaning And Its Associated Understanding Undergo Change. The English Word History Is Ordinarily Translated As Itihasa In The Sanskrit-Rooted Indian Languages. In The Euro-Americal Tradition History Is Traced To The Greek Word Historia, Learnt. Words Like Narrative, Story And Account Are Closely Linked To History. Itihasa Literally Means What Indeed Happened. Its Cognates In Indian Languages Are Itivrtta, Upakhyana, Gatha And Purana. That These Words Are Closely Related To Narrative, Story And Past Events Are Obvious. Chattopadhyaya Has Tried To Argue In This Book That The Modern Scientific Concept Of History, Though Has Its Undeniable Importance, Should Not Be Understood In A Dehistorised Manner. The Modern Concept Of History Should Not Be Confused With The Ancient Or Even The Medieval Concepts Like Purana, Puravrtta, Itihasa And Upakhyana. Our Modes Of Under-Standing And Action Should Not Be Telescoped Into Theirs. This Distinction Squarely Rests On The Difference Between Age-Specific Social Conditions And Their Influence On Human Ideas, Ideals, Languages, Rather Modes Of Speech, And Actions. An Attempt Has Been Made To Show How Literature In Its Wider Sense, Comprising Epoch-Bound Beliefs, Myths, Customs, Conventions, Social Movements And Other Forms Of Culture Enter Into Historical Narrative. In The Name Of Contemporanity Of History Its Very Temporality Or Time-Bound Character Can Hardly Be Denied. Chattopadhyaya Argues That History Embodies A Sort Of Inter-Epochal Dialogue (Samtap) Which, Like Different Forms Of Science And Arts, Are Endlessly Updatable. The Work Will Be Of Interest To Historians, Philosophers Of History, Social Scientists And Indologists.

The contributors to this volume share a Poetics of Memory as the constant shift between representation in different kinds of cultural archives and its performance in various acts of cultural recollection. They are engaged in four main projects of mnemonic inquiry: The first deals with the history of the subject and the moment of recollection. The second opens the scope of an aesthetic reading of literary texts towards cultural memory in general. The third examines the nature of (literary) memory as such. The final group of contributors delimits the literary text towards intertextuality and electronic hypertext which challenges but also confirms the proposed Poetics of Memory
