BeschreibungGender and Memory brings together contributions from around the world and from a range of disciplines to create a volume that confronts all those concerned with autobiographical testimony and narrative, both spoken and written. The fundamental theme is the shaping of memory by gender. The contributors maintain that memories are gendered, and that the gendering of memory makes a strong impact on the shaping of social spaces and expressive forms as the horions of memory move from generation. They argue that in order to understand how memory becomes gendered, we need to travel through the realms of gendered experience and gendered language.
