We live in a world of ‘memory wars’. A world in which there is a constant struggle for the right to remember, for the right to one’s history, to one’s memories, to one’s identity. The guest editor of this issue is art historian and curator Dr. Daiva Price. In Memory as a Journal the curator asks: how do we talk about history when the present is in competition with the past? How can we talk about Second World War when the War in Ukraine is happening now? How should we remember when memory is traumatic?
