This volume presents an interdisciplinary approach to humanistic scholarship situated somewhere between cultural studies and cultural history. Cultural analysis as a critical practice is based on a keen awareness of the critic's situatedness in the present and devoted to understanding the past as part of
the present. Thus it can be summarized as "cultural memory in the present."
