Memory as part of our subjectivity, also marks our shared experience as political communities. This experience partially individual, partially collective, is a complex field of analysis.
How is political violence reconstructed in history and literature? How is memory signified in political discourses and what is its role in composing political identities? These are some of the questions surrounding the topic of memory and politics. It involves different disciplines, from institutional analysis to biographical studies, discourse analysis and the examination of social representations in post-traumatic societies.
Therefore, memory could be part of the emergence of a collective project as well as as a field of discussion about the hermeneutic reconstruction of the past. For that reason, this project of interpretation is not detached from the political implications of the operations of deconstruction. The main methodologycal operations thought to be part of this project are to identify the marks in the memory political violence, deconstruct its representations and rethink the duality abscence/presence.
Finally, we believe that the work done by this team and its partners institutions, aims at analyzing citizenship building in post-traumatic societies. It starts where there were sistematic violations of human rights and dignity. The reinterpretation of the past can be accounted in present events which are, at the same time, essential part of future projects. The efforts of this research community are part of a forum called "Cátedra de la Memoria" created jointly by the Center for Latin American Studies, Diego Portales University and the Memory and Human Rights Museum in Chile.
