In such contexts, crafting an identity for oneself implies expectations of consistency, linked not only to the individual need to prove oneself and disprove stereotypes and statistics, but also to the broader political goal of dis-alienating or, as it were, de-Othering oneself and ones community. The contributors to this book explore the different ways - from the most institutional to the most intimate - in which people articulate the politics of memory and the creation of national narratives, or communal and personal identities.
