Published on 4 December, 2016

Eds. Stefan Jonsson & Julia Willén, Routledge 2016.

Publisher's description:

This book examines how political and economic crises in
the present trigger a selective forgetting and remodelling
of the past. Leading European scholars intervene in debates
on migration, multiculturalism and postcoloniality, showing
how new regimes of historiography and memory culture
reflect emerging patterns of discrimination and social
segmentation in today’s European societies.
