    Abstract:
    The Cambridge History of Ireland, vol. IV: 1800 to Present, edited by Thomas Bartlett (Cambridge University Press, 2018), 708-725: A survey of changing obsessions in Ireland with remembrance of various episodes in the past, identifies moments of heightened commemoration and charts the development of modern memorial practices over the twentieth century. Growing awareness to the multifaceted and multilayered expressions of memory in Irish culture ultimately reveals the necessity to rewrite the history of the twentieth century.
    Notes:
    This essay more or less continues a historical survey of Irish memory from the mid-eighteenth century: Guy Beiner, ‘The Formation of Modern Irish Memory, c.1740–1914’ in The Cambridge Social History of Modern Ireland, edited by Eugenio F. Biagini and Mary E. Daly (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2017), pp. 586-93.
