East Central European Cemeteries
Ethnic, Linguistic, and Narrative Aspects of Sepulchral Culture and the Commemoration of the Dead in Borderlands
©2023 Edited Collection 154 Pages
Series: Studies on Language and Culture in Central and Eastern Europe, Volume 41
This edited volume asks what earlier and contemporary cemeteries and memorials can tell us about manifestations of past times. How do they testify of contradictory dimensions of memorial behavior: from commemoration or celebration to forgetting? The chapters in this volume address the work of cultural remembrance connected mostly to various minority groups in East Central Europe while enquiring into tangible and intangible intertwining spheres―visible and hidden signs, traces and lifeworlds of memories, emotions, stories, and historical interpretations.
