Politics of memory - museums and heritage

The researchers look through various perspectives to investigate meanings and values that have been spread by memory institutions in the name of tradition or of modernity. Some research projects also analyze the manner in which social groups selectively use the past to build social imaginaries that meet their specific interests. The comparison between popular and official cultural manifestations points to a historical and interpretative perspective that guides much of the work.
