Post-memory constellations in post-colonial Europe

Memoirs

Post-memory constellations in post-colonial Europe

Memoirs – Children of Empires and European Postmemories, a pioneering project in the development of research into the impact of colonial legacies on the following generations in Portugal, France and Belgium, is now presenting its results. The questioning of these legacies is diversifying the European debate, renewing European literature and art, museography and curatorship and strengthening and diversifying the forms of individual and collective intervention.
