Peripheral memories. Public and private forms of experiencing and narrating the past

Peripheral memories. Public and private forms of experiencing and narrating the past

After a period of intensive work on national memory cultures, we are observing a growing interest in memory both as a social and an individual practice. Memory studies tend to focus on a particular field of memory processes, namely those connected with war, persecution and expulsion. In this sense, the memory – or rather the trauma – of the Holocaust is paradigmatic for the entire research field. The Holocaust is furthermore increasingly understood as constitutive of a global memory community which transcends national memories and mediates universal values.

The Bitter Years. The Farm Security Administration Photographs Through the Eyes of Edward Steichen.

The Bitter Years. The Farm Security Administration Photographs Through the Eyes of Edward Steichen.

The "Bitter Years" was the title of a seminal exhibition held in 1962 at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, curated by Edward Steichen, and 2012 marks its 50th anniversary. The show featured 209 images by photographers who worked under the aegis of the US Farm Security Administration (FSA) in 193541 as part of Roosevelts New Deal. The Great Depression of the 1930s defined a generation in modern American history and was still a vivid memory in 1962.

Internet et avant ?

Internet et avant ?

Si en moins de quarante années, l’informatique s’est diffusée dans le grand public, permettant de faire circuler des données, du son, de l’image, si cette société de l’information et de la communication est incarnée par l’Internet, d’autres réseaux ont apporté leur contribution à une histoire dont l’étude éclaire les possibles, les futurs, les modèles, positifs ou répulsifs, qui traversent des imaginaires des réseaux, qui ne commencent pas avec Internet.

“Sobbing, Whining, Rumbling” – Listening to Automobiles as Social Practice

“Sobbing, Whining, Rumbling” – Listening to Automobiles as Social Practice

Who listened to cars in the 1920s? Who listened to the sound of its technical malfunctions in the 1950s? Who were the experts to diagnose failures by their ‘golden ears’ (Perlman 2004)? What role did listening play in early automobility? To answer these questions, my paper will analyze how different actor groups in Germany listened to automobiles between the end of World War I and roughly 1960. Further, I’ll focus on car technology’s middle ground – the space between production and consumption (Borg 2007: 1–12).
