The Memory of the Modern

by

The Memory of the Modern Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A multidisciplinary work, Memory of the Modern examines stock markets, tango dancers, vagabond murderers, neurology, monument destruction, and colonial policies to document how individuals and institutions shaped memory in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The book studies these diverse "memory-sites" to show how memory and history are fought over, shaped, and put to personal and ideological use.

Synopsis:

Memory has a history. The Classical world ordered and valued events differently than the Medieval world; which, in turn, was replaced by 'the memory' of the Renaissance. Matt Matsuda's compelling, multidisciplinary argument in The Memory of the Modern is that the understanding, value, and uses of memory changed yet again at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth centuries, becoming distinctively 'modern.'

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 209-241) and index.
