Book Description:

Catholic residents of a decayed railway colony in India are haunted by domestic ghosts. Sex workers in London struggle to link past to present, their own pasts fragmented among different lives lived under different names. Through a close study of such examples, Ghosts of Memory: Essays in Remembrance and Relatedness explores the subtle and complex intersections between everyday forms of relatedness in the present and memories of the past. The essays collected here explore how their various subjects are located in personal and familial histories that connect to the wider political formations of which they are a part. They point to the myriad articulations -- of temporality, memory, personal biography, family connection, and political processes -- that are manifested in subjective dispositions to the past, and in the imagination of available futures. Ghosts of Memory provides an overview of literature on relatedness and memory and then moves beyond traditional approaches to the subject. It also suggests some common forms and themes that emerge through the diverse lives, geographical locations, and social contexts: pasts disrupted by migration, personal trauma, or political upheaval; the present disturbed by ghosts and hauntings, illness, and absent or abusive familial relations. Drawing on anthropology, literature, memory studies, and social history, this collection will be of interest to a wide range of specialist and general readers.

From the Back Cover:

Catholic residents of a decayed railway colony in Bengal are haunted by domestic ghosts. Sex workers in London recount pasts that are fragmented among different lives lived under different names. Through a close study of such examples, Ghosts of Memory: Essays on Remembrance and Relatedness explores the subtle and complex intersections between everyday forms of relatedness in the present and memories of the past. The essays collected here examine how their various subjects are located in personal and familial histories that connect to the wider political formations of which they are a part. They point to the myriad articulations - of temporality, memory, personal biography, family connection, and political processes - that are manifested in subjective dispositions to the past, and in the imagination of possible futures.

Ghosts of Memory provides an overview of literature on relatedness and memory and moves beyond previous approaches to the subject. It suggests some common forms and themes that emerge through the diverse lives, geographical locations, and social contexts considered in these essays: pasts disrupted by migration, personal trauma, or political upheaval; the present disturbed by ghosts and hauntings, illness, and absent or abusive familial relations. Drawing on anthropology, literature, memory studies, and social history, this collection will be of interest to a wide range of specialist and general readers.
