Evoking Polish Memory. 
State, Self and the Communist Past in Transition

Peter Lang, Frankfurt am Main 2014

The book offers an interdisciplinary but very grounded look at the question of memory politics in contemporary Poland. It describes the conflicting ways in which two groups of people - the former anti-communist activists and the former officers of the repressive regime - have actively engaged in representations and claims about the communist past in the contemporary reality of one Polish town. The material is based on ethnographic fieldwork conducted during the years 2006-2008. The author focused on the processes of reconstruction of memories and subjectivities taking place at the intersection of individuals, civic society.
