Cultural memory studies – as defined in this handbook – came into being at the beginning of the 20th century, with the works of Maurice Halbwachs on mémoire collective. As a consequence, the study of the relation of culture and memory has diversified into a wide range of approaches. This handbook is based on a broad understanding of cultural memory as the interplay of present and past in sociocultural contexts.

The introduction of American literature in departments of English at Egyptian state-funded universities in.

The introduction of American literature in departments of English at Egyptian state-funded universities in 1959 coincided with the rising role of the US as a global power post World War II, its overtly imperial interests in the Middle East and the Arab World, and its support for the State of Israel. It became necessary then to engage with the US. This essay examines the fledgling attempts to develop American literature curricula into programs of American studies.

This volume brings together twenty original essays by scholars from the United States, Great Britain, France, Italy, and Germany. It focuses on the centrality of memory and commemoration to the formation, affirmation, and revision of American histories and identities over the course of more than two centuries. Individual studies engage theoretical issues and perspectives of American memory studies (Michael Kammen, Aleida Assmann), discuss literary texts that position themselves at the intersection of personal and cultural memories and countermemories (Klaus Benesch, Joseph C. Schopp, Francois Pitavy, Ulfried Reichardt, Nicolas Witschi, Renate von Bardeleben), interpret theatrical performances and civic festivities as enactments of individual and collective remembering (Kurt Muller, Winfried Herget, Heike Bungert, Udo J. Hebel), explore the potential of films, folk songs, and public buildings as commemorative media and memorial spaces (Winfried Fluck, James Olney, John Seelye, William Boelhower), and address the political and cultural implications of literary anthologies, national archives, and virtual libraries (Werner Sollors, Caroline Sloat, Christopher Mulvey, Hanjo Berressem). The collection offers a seminal contribution to interdisciplinary scholarship on sites of memory in American literatures und cultures.
