Chapter Summary

The transmission of memory is a prerequisite for the emergence, continuity and change of memory cultures. This chapter maps out a new analytical perspective on memory cultures and memory transmission during the transitory period of early modern state formation. Memory transmission itself will be approached from the perspective of time with reference to generational memory and of space with reference to migration and the dispersion of people, written media and artefacts. The chapter develops the concept of early modern 'glocal memoryscapes'. The phenomenon of memory transmission over time as memories are passed on, adapted, transfigured or suppressed from generation to generation. The chapter focuses on the role of material culture for memory transmission. It then argues that in processes of memory transmission and identity formation, time, space and things are intrinsically interrelated.

Keywords: 'glocal memoryscapes'; artefacts; memory transmission; written media
