Our dual concern at the Cultural Identity and Memory Studies Institute (CIMS) is to explore cultural identity and cultural memory: that is, the investigation of the diverse textual constructs and creations (e.g. traditions, myths, literary canons, and political institutions) by which national and other cultural groups represent, criticise, renew and repurpose their sense of identity and memory.
