Abstract [en]

Within the vast interdisciplinary field of memory studies and among its most influential voices (such as Maurice Halbwachs, Pierre Nora, Aleida Assmann, Astrid Erll, Michael Rothberg, Bill Schwarz and Susannah Radstone), the name of Stuart Hall has been conspicuously absent. Drawing on my theorizations within the emerging field of media memory studies, my paper argues that Stuart Hall’s ideas provide important insights into the mediation of transnational memories and their mediatisation. Revisiting some of Stuart Hall’s theorisations put forward in texts such as “New Ethnicities”, “Whose Heritage” and “Reconstruction Work”, my paper suggests new ways to reconceptualise notions such as transculturality, remediation and the archive. Overall, I claim that memory studies could profit from Stuart Hall’s valuable theorisations on anti-essentialism, representation and the workings of cultural heritage.
