Die Geschichte des ,kleinen Volkes‘ in den Augen des ,großen Palastes‘

From the book Zwischen nationalen und transnationalen Erinnerungsnarrativen in Zentraleuropa

  • Lucie Antošíková


The paper examines the possibilities and strategies of transnational cultural memory using the novel The Praise of Opportunism (2016) by Marek Toman as the main example. Conceptually, the paper is based on the works of Aleida and Jan Assmann and focuses on how Czech (national) cultural memory is narrated, how it can be confronted with different collective memories and what might emerge from such confrontations.
