書名:The Spirit of Mourning（ISBN=9781107648838）
How is the memory of traumatic events, such as genocide andtorture, inscribed within human bodies? In this book, PaulConnerton discusses social and cultural memory by looking at therole of mourning in the production of histories and the reticenceof silence across many different cultures. In particular he looksat how memory is conveyed in gesture, bodily posture, speech andthe senses – and how bodily memory, in turn, becomes manifested incultural objects such as tattoos, letters, buildings and publicspaces. It is argued that memory is more cultural and collectivethan it is individual. This book will appeal to researchers andstudents in anthropology, linguistic anthropology, sociology,social psychology and philosophy.
