The history of memory is part of an entwined and transnational history. Debates about the past bear the traces of a globalizing world that are deeply engraved in what is often still perceived as the realm of the uniquely national, of a peculiar mentality and mindset. The various exchanges and interventions across national boundaries introduce multiple temporalities into an arena where these conflicting narratives of the past are negotiated. The complex dialectic of remembering and forgetting is not confined to the territory of a nation-state just like the history itself.
