Reviews

“The fieldwork that these authors have carried out for several years makes this book’s insights particularly valuable. Art and images are used in a rich and experimental way to discuss human rights struggles, narratives of memory and identity, changes needed in conceptualising identity and language, and more horizontal ways to address contemporary migration in education.” • Margaret Tali, University of Groningen

Description

Migration is most concretely defined by the movement of human bodies, but it leaves indelible traces on everything from individual psychology to major social movements. Drawing on extensive field research, and with a special focus on Italy and the Netherlands, this interdisciplinary volume explores the interrelationship of migration and memory at scales both large and small, ranging across topics that include oral and visual forms of memory, archives, and artistic innovations. By engaging with the complex tensions between roots and routes, minds and bodies, The Mobility of Memory offers an incisive and empirically grounded perspective on a social phenomenon that continues to reshape both Europe and the world.

Luisa Passerini is Professor Emerita of History at the European University Institute, Florence, and former Principal Investigator of the European Research Project “Bodies Across Borders: Oral and Visual Memory in Europe and Beyond.”

Gabriele Proglio is a Researcher at the Centre for Social Studies, University of Coimbra and former Research Assistant with the European Research Project “Bodies Across Borders: Oral and Visual Memory in Europe and Beyond.”

Milica Trakilovic, PhD, teaches in the Graduate Gender Program at Utrecht University and was formerly a Research Assistant with the European Research Project “Bodies Across Borders: Oral and Visual Memory in Europe and Beyond.”
