Reviews

This broad-ranging collection brings into focus a set of approaches--techno-scientific, personal, and global--that add to the ever-compelling topics of identity, rootedness, mobility, and return. With its fascinating new perspectives, this book demonstrates the importance of memory studies for a better understanding of the future.--Françoise Lionnet, University of California, Los Angeles
