Narrativas de la Memoria

Aproximaciones desde el campo de los archivos y los lugares de la memoria

Series:

Luis Carlos Toro Tamayo

Este libro indaga sobre el papel de los archivos, las bibliotecas y los museos en la producción, conservación y transmisión de la memoria y los dispositivos culturales y comunicativos del recuerdo. Se pregunta además por los lenguajes, las narrativas, los actores, los lugares físicos y simbólicos, las instituciones, las tradiciones y las formaciones sociales que constituyen parte del repertorio de experiencias que configuran el entramado documental que le da sustento a la memoria. Así mismo, busca ampliar las perspectivas de análisis sobre el campo de los archivos de Derechos Humanos, las historias de vida, los procesos sociales de resistencia política, las memorias subterráneas que están en tensión con los discursos dominantes, las manifestaciones estéticas, los movimientos sociales y todas aquellas expresiones que, derivadas de la experiencia, nos permiten acercarnos, cada vez más, a la comprensión de las sociedades en las que vivimos.

Thus, the role of the documents and their social and cultural effect are an object that draws the attention of researchers interested in this...
