Traitors, Collaborators and Deserters in Contemporary European Politics of Memory - Formulas of Betrayal


 

This volume offers a multidisciplinary approach to shaping and imposition of 'formulas for betrayal' as a result of changing memory politics in post-war Europe. The contributors, who specialize in history, sociology, anthropology, memory studies, media studies and cultural studies, discuss the exertion of political control over memory (including the selection, imposition, silencing or ideological 'twisting' of facts), the usage of 'formulas for betrayal' in various cultural-political contexts, and the discursive framing of the betraying subject for the purpose of legitimizing various memory regimes and ideologies.

Gelinada Grinchenko is Professor of History at the Department of Ukrainian Studies (Faculty of Philosophy, V. N. Karazin National University, Kharkiv, Ukraine).

Eleonora Narvselius is an ethnologist affiliated with Center for European Studies at Lund University.
