ABSTRACT

The book “Geometrias da Memória: configurações pós-coloniais” is the first volume of the series “Memoirs – Filhos de Império”, from the research group also called “MEMOIRS – Filhos de Império e Pós-memorias Europeias” (http: //memoirs.ces.uc.pt) funded by the European Research Council (ERC). Organized by António Sousa Ribeiro and Margarida Calafate Ribeiro, the book examines the place of memory and post-colonial memory in the narrative of European history. The preface to the book evokes the creation of the European Community and arrives at the current debates to question the discourses on unity and peace in Europe. In these discourses, however, the Other is always omitted, the one that comes from the extraterritorial history of Europe and that was decisive for its construction. The organizers of the book call for an exercise of memory, where articulation with a postcolonial reflection would allow justice and eventually reconstruct the narrative of the relationship of Europe with its various Others. The project encompasses Portugal, France and Belgium in their articulation with the colonial memory, and the process of decolonization of the next generation (the post-memory holders).
