(p.1) Introduction
Hiroshima Traces

Lisa Yoneyama

University of California Press

This book explores the cultural meanings and political implications of the practices of remembering, reinscribing, and retelling memories of Hiroshima. In exploring the politics of historical knowledge about Hiroshima, this ethnography deploys the concept of memory as its central device. It examines some of the spatial strategies that have contributed to taming knowledge about the city's past, analyzes the testimonial practices of Hiroshima's survivors, and considers how acts of remembrance have produced ethnic and gendered subjectivities in the post-war years.

Keywords:   Hiroshima, practices of remembering, ethnography, testimonial practices, ethnic subjectivities, gendered subjectivities, cultural meanings, political implications
