Bringing together vivid ethnographic material, this book opens up a timely
conversation between memory and mobility/migration studies. It goes beyond
the idea of the nation state as the primary unit of analysis to explore how
people on the move use different forms and media of remembering to make
sense of their lives and act as political subjects. Investigating when and
by what means people on the move remember and communicate memories in the
context of various forms of (im)mobility, the authors examine photographs,
films, the reinhabiting of pre-exilic homes, pseudo-historical performances,
transgenerational mnemonic gatherings and transnational political activism.
This edited collection will appeal to scholars of anthropology, sociology,
political science, human geography, history and oral history.

'[...] Through a series of excellent essays focusing on the mobility of
people, objects, sites and paradigms, this volume uses concrete ethnographic
analyses of memory practices in different parts of the globe to offer
theoretical reflections on how memory shapes and is shaped by mobility in
time and space.'

Marianne Hirsch, Columbia University, USA

'Memories on the Move is a brilliant edited volume that fills an important
gap in the field of memory studies as it weaves together issues of mobility
and remembering [...].'

David Berliner, Universit Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium

'This thought-provoking volume disentangles, ethnographically, the
complexity of meaning-making practices of memory/forgetting in various
contexts of (im)mobility [...].'

Noel B. Salazar, University of Leuven, Belgium
