Questions of remembrance and representation




  • Marta Marín-Dòmine (Centre for Memory and Testimony Studies, Laurier University, Waterloo-Toronto): La transmission et la construction de l’espace transgénérationnel (pdf)

    The article, written as a personal memoir and essay, wants to reflect on transmission questioning the notion of “filiation” while asserting the importance of accepting the past as heritage. In doing so, the author dialogues with the unpublished memoirs written by a child who experienced the Spanish war, in fact her father, to show the traces it has left in her way to reconstruct the past. The article stresses the need to rethink the effects that deterritorialised memory, the memory of exile, has in our present, as well as that of those who after being in exile had to re-enter Spain little after the end of the war.
