PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Hiroshima Traces: Time, Space, and the Dialectics of Memory Remembering Hiroshima the city obliterated by the world s first nuclear attack has been a complicated and intensely politicized process as we learn from Lisa Yoneyama s sensitive investigation of the dialectics of memory She explores unconventional texts and dimensions of culture involved in constituting Hiroshima memories including history textbook controversies discourses on the city s tourism and urban renewal projects campaigns to preserve atomic ruins survivors testimonial practices ethnic Koreans narratives on Japanese colonialism and the feminized discourse on peace in order to illuminate the politics of knowledge about the past and present In the way battles over memories have been expressed as material struggles over the cityscape itself we see that not all share the dominant remembering of Hiroshima s disaster with its particular sense of pastness nostalgia and modernity The politics of remembering in Yoneyama s analysis is constituted by multiple and contradictory senses of time space and positionality elements that have been profoundly conditioned by late capitalism and intensifying awareness of post Cold War and postcolonial realities .
i Hiroshima Traces i besides clarifying the discourse surrounding this unforgotten catastrophe reflects on questions that accompany any attempts to recover marginalized or silenced experiences At a time when historical memories around the globe appear simultaneously threatening and in danger of obliteration Yoneyama asks how acts of remembrance can serve the cause of knowledge without being co opted and deprived of their unsettling self critical qualities
