Review:

“This is essential reading for anyone interested in the role of museums in today's memory culture.” (Astrid Erll, Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main, Germany)

Mediating Memory in the Museum provides a comprehensive and engaging study  of the ethics, politics and aesthetics of the new memory museum. Innovatively combining insights from  memory studies, museum studies and media studies Arnold-de Simine goes beyond description to produce a finely-tuned evaluation of  the achievements and limitations of the new museological practices identified in this ground-breaking work.” (Susannah Radstone, University of South Australia, Australia)

“Silke Arnold-de Simine's clearly written study demonstrates the important contribution memory studies can make to understanding contemporary curatorial and design strategies in museums. Through a series of fascinating case studies, she explores the role of ideas of trauma, witnessing, collective memory, media as prosthetic memories, nostalgia and 'dark tourism'? Above all, she provides a much needed critique of museum assumptions about visitor identification and empathy.” (Michelle Henning, University of West London, UK)

“An original and much needed contribution to memory and museum studies that draws our attention to the intersections of trauma, empathy and nostalgia within what Arnold de Simine terms the ‘memory museum’. The book closely works through  a wide range of powerfully  analyzed case studies that connect together in new ways how we think about difficult pasts in the museum environment.” (Anna Reading, Kings College, University of London, UK)<

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 224 pages. Mediating Memory in the Museum is a contribution to an emerging field of research which is situated at the interface between memory studies and museum studies. It highlights the role of museums in the proliferation of the so-called memory boom as well as the influence of memory discourses on international trends in museum cultures. By looking at a range of museums in Germany, Britain, France and Belgium, which address a diverse spectrum of topics such as migration, difficult and dark heritage, war, slavery and the GDR, Arnold-de Simine outlines the paradigm shifts in exhibiting practices associated with the transformation of traditional history museums and heritage sites into spaces of memory over the past thirty years. She probes the political and ethical claims of new museums and maps the relevance of key concepts such as vicarious trauma, secondary witnessing, empathic unsettlement, prosthetic memory and reflective nostalgia in the museum landscape. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780230368866
