Title Memories of a Modernity to be
Author(s) Hemer, Oscar
Date 2007-09-15
English abstract
Truth and reconciliation are decisive factors in contemporary South African culture. 'Memories of modernity' connote two parallel tendencies in literature and other forms of mediated fiction. Firstly, a yearning to link back to an idealized pre-apartheid past – often depicted and interpreted as an embryonic modernity which is brutally interrupted. Secondly, the attempt to come to grips with this alleged parenthesis: the investigation of the recent past by experimental means.
