Title Re-enactments of historical seafaring between experimental archaeology and constructions of identity
Author(s) Dittmar, Jakob
Date 2013
English abstract
Paper looks into the specific ways of dealing with the past in re-enactments of historical sea-journeys, e.g. journeys of discovery. They, like other forms of re-enactments, are experiments in documenting and reflecting on historic conditions of life. Beyond that, re-enactments generate memories and connect historic topics to the present. There is a poignant difference between re-enactments that try to establish a more precise understanding of specific historic constructions, maintenance, or usages and those that focus on emotional understanding of past events and their meaning for today's culture.
