Memory on the Move: Theory and Methodology of Memory and Migration
Workshop, Budapest 29-30 September 2014
The dominant framework and metaphor for memory studies has been place and nation. However, in a society characterized by mobility and migration, by transnational trajectories across borders, place and nation as point of departures for memory studies have become untenable. Moreover, they have failed to respond to an analysis of the agency of diasporic and transnational communities.
