How do we account for experiences of trauma and memory in multicultural and 'globalized' societies? "World Memory" blends the study of trauma and memory with perspectives from postcolonial theory to explore a range of traumatic personal and socio historical experiences: September 11, the Holocaust, Stolen Generations, Apartheid, racism, sexual abuse, migration and diaspora. From diverse disciplinary bases, the writers examine psychoanalytic, artistic, literary and vernacular accounts of trauma, collectively revealing what happens when languages of memory traverse boundaries of culture, space and time.
