Memory matters. It is crucial to some of the fields of scholarly inquiry that have been most prominent in recent years: the study of nationalism, questions of ethnic identity and the politics of recognition, in which groups are given recognition not least for the past experience of exclusion and suffering. Moreover, there have been numerous studies of cultural memory as expressed in monuments, memorials, works of art, and school textbooks.
