Memory plays an integral part in how individuals and societies construct their identity. While memory is usually considered in the context of a stable, unchanging environment, this collection of essays explores the effects of immigration, forced expulsions, exile, banishment, and war on individual and collective memory. The ways in which memory affects cultural representation and historical understanding across generations is examined through case studies and theoretical approaches that underscore its mutability. Memory and Migration is a truly interdisciplinary book featuring the work of leading scholars from a variety of fields across the globe. The essays are collaborative, successfully responding to the central theme and expanding upon the findings of individual authors. A groundbreaking contribution to an emerging field of study, Memory and Migration provides valuable insight into the connections between memory, place, and displacement.

Exile Identity, Agency and Belonging in South Africa

This book examines the experiences of 49 second-generation exiles from South Africa. Using “generation” as an analytical concept, it investigates the relational, temporal and embodied nature of their childhoods in terms of kinship relations, life cycle, cohort development and memory-making. It reveals how child agents exploited the liminal nature of exile to negotiate their sense of identity, home and belonging, while also struggling over their position and power in formal Politics and informal politics of the everyday. It also reflects upon their political consciousness, identity and sense of civic duty on return to post-apartheid South Africa, and how this has led to the emergence of the Masupatsela generational cohort concerned with driving social and political change in South Africa.

This volume will be a collection of chapters from authors with wide experience in their research field. The purpose is to produce a coherent book that reflects the common theme of theory in medical thinking and multidisciplinary research practice. In this context "theory" relates to frameworks of concepts, facts, models etc that help to inform practitioners (clinicians, scientists and engineers) both within their own fields and as they seek to share dialogue with colleagues from other fields. Multidisciplinary Approaches to Theory in Medicine will therefore be integrative across a broad spectrum of fields within medicine. To achieve this the chapters will be associated with others in a number of meaningful ways. Each chapter will share a number of points of contact that will include at least two of the following: Similar biomedical area (e.g., immunity, neuroscience, endocrinology, pathology, oncology, haematology, ...) Similar multidisciplinary theoretical contexts (e.g., modelling, analysis, description, visualization, complex systems, ...) Similar multidisciplinary medical issues and questions (e.g., clinical practice, decision making, informatics, ...) Uniquely explores role of interdisciplinary exchange in the development and expansion of medical theory Timely and insightful essays on the growth and development of medical theories from some of the world's top clinicians and medical researchers, including Werner Arber, Frank Vertosick, and David Weatherall Assembles diverse perspectives on medicine and physiology from biology, statistics, ethics, computer science, philosophy, history Uniquely illuminates the social and historical processes through which theoretical research translates into clinical practice Reveals the growing role of technology, especially computational modelling, in changing the nature of Western medicine

Über den Arabischen Frühling, Occupy Wall Street – und den Massenmord von Breivik 2011 – das Jahr des Arabischen Frühlings, der Occupy Wall Street-Bewegung, der Revolte in den Vorstädten Londons. 2011 – das Jahr von Breiviks ideologischer Wahnsinnstat, des aufkommenden Antisemitismus in Ungarn, des zunehmenden Rassismus. Gefährliche Träume in zweierlei Richtung stehen dahinter: emanzipatorische und destruktive. Was bedeuten diese Ereignisse im Kontext des globalen Kapitalismus? Mit Dialektik, analytischer Schärfe und gewohnt pointensicher legt Slavoj Žižek die Widersprüche der gegenwärtigen politischen Lage frei und fragt, wie wir das System bekämpfen können, ohne zu seinem Funktionieren beizutragen. »Theorie muss auch immer sexy sein, sie muss unterhalten, provozieren, bruchstückhaft und leicht zitierbar sein, physisch spürbar wie Rockmusik. All das liefert Žižek.« Der Spiegel

Social Identities: Multidisciplinary Approaches attempts to make sense of the increasingly complex ways in which we define ourselves and others. It recognises that we are not simply individuals, or members of a certain class or a certain nationality. Rather, each of us comprises a rich blend of various identities. The book provides not only an eclectic spectrum of the forms of identity and influences through which identities are formed, but also critical treatment of the theoretical tools used to understand these phenomena.

Ein virtuos erzählter Road Trip zu den eigenen Wurzeln 1908 wird in Chicago der junge osteuropäische Einwanderer Lazarus Averbuch, ein vermeintlicher Anarchist, vom Polizeipräsidenten aus nächster Nähe erschossen.

Mit seinem Freund Rora macht er sich auf den Weg in die Heimat von Lazarus - ihre Reise wird zu einer Suche nach den eigenen Wurzeln.

Was erinnern Deutsche aus der NS-Vergangenheit? Die bahnbrechende Studie, die eine ganze Forschungstradition begründet hat und seit 2002 in zahllosen Auflagen und Sprachen erschienen ist Was wird in Familien »ganz normaler« Deutscher über Nationalsozialismus und Holocaust überliefert? Die Autoren haben in Familiengesprächen und Interviews untersucht, was Deutsche aus der NS-Vergangenheit erinnern, wie sie darüber sprechen und was davon an die Kinder- und Enkelgeneration weitergegeben wird. Die Ergebnisse der Interviews mit drei Generationen machen deutlich, dass in den Familien andere Bilder von der NS-Vergangenheit vermittelt werden als z.B. in den Schulen. Im Familiengedächtnis finden sich vorrangig Geschichten über das Leiden der eigenen Angehörigen unter Bespitzelung, Terror, Krieg, Bomben und Gefangenschaft. Diese Themen werden in den Familien nicht als Wissen vermittelt, sondern als Gewissheit. »Nazis« kommen in den eigenen Familien nicht vor: »Opa war kein Nazi.«

It is only through certain forms of social use that media become "Media of collective memory". The phenomenon of a "Remembrance film", too (e.g. Das Leben der Anderen, Hotel Ruanda, On connaît la chanson ) only comes about in a plurimedial context with its incorporation into a complex systemic media network that makes it into a remembrance film through various forms of reference. The volume analyses film using the methodology of studies in cultural memory to reveal the functioning of these constellations.
