In-Visible Palimpsest: Memory, Space and Modernity in Berlin and Shanghai - Eurosinica 15 (Paperback)Lu Pan (author)
- We can order this
similar aspiration of "re-modernizing" themselves. In this sense, the current experience of Shanghai and Berlin informs many of the features of urban modernity in the post-Cold-War era. The book unfolds the complexity of the urban space per se as highly revealing cultural texts. Also this project doesn't examine the spatial changes in chronological terms, but rather takes the present moment as the temporal standing point of this research. By comparing the memory discourse related to these spatial changes, the book poses the question of how modernity is understood in the matrix of local, national and global power struggles.
