Memorylands investigates the nature of heritage, memory and understandings of the past in Europe today. It addresses the ongoing apparent ‘memory obsession’ evident in a proliferation of museums, heritage sites and memorials, and arguments about the changing nature of identities – especially national, European and global. Its aim is to provide a new perspective on the place of the past, especially as manifest in museums, heritage and memorials, in different parts of Europe.
