Content of the Volume

This volume offers a multidisciplinary approach to formulating 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) formulas for betrayal "in various cultural-political contexts, and the discursive framing of the subject for the purpose of legitimizing various memory regimes and ideologies.
