    L’histoire comme résultat du jeu entre la mémoire et l’oubli.Simona Mitroiu - 2006 - Cultura 3 (1):53-72.
    The memory and the oblivion are the two coordinates which define the cultural identity. In this context the history is the result of the interactions between these two coordinates. The paper presents the relationship between memory and oblivion, emphasizing the special role of the oblivion and also trying to diminish the categorical opposition between memory and oblivion. The history is the product of a selection process of information, a process which is intimately bound up with the dynamics of the two (...)

    Life Narratives of the Past: Herta Müller on Communist Romania.Simona Mitroiu - 2019 - The European Legacy 24 (2):202-219.
    ABSTRACTNarratives of the past are created and, in some cases, recreated, through literary works by revealing fragments from past traumas, reinterpreting past events, or focusing on historical events held in the collective memory. In a text dedicated to excavation and memory, Walter Benjamin notes that when approaching one’s personal past, one must proceed like a person digging in the ground, and not be afraid of returning repeatedly to the same matter. This essay argues that Herta Müller uses this method to (...)

    Narrative Identity and Trauma: Sebald’s Memory Landscape.Simona Mitroiu - 2014 - The European Legacy 19 (7):883-900.
    Narrative identity is said to consist of a few key reference points—places, events, peoples, ceremonies, rites, ideas, and values—that translate into sites of memory that are representative of a person’s or a community’s past. In this essay I explore the role of traumatic memories in the formation of collective identity, the national or transnational sites of memory that are officialized by the state. I argue that collective traumas need to be counterbalanced by personal memories that can diminish their pain and (...)

    Signs of Memory and Traces of Oblivion.Simona Mitroiu & Elena Adam - 2009 - Cultura 6 (2):145-158.
    The main objectives of this paper are to analyze the relation between memory and oblivion and their exterior forms to the level of physical and cultural space. The notion of memory places (defined as accumulations of signs of identity and their materializations) is presented in its two manifestations: as memory landmarks (connection points to the collective past) and as memory signs. The distinction is based on the power of memory to remind us who we are, but also what we forgot (...)

    The Culture at the Crossing Between the Memory and the Oblivion.Simona Mitroiu - 2008 - Cultura 5 (1):123-129.
    The culture defines some of the elements that we consider identity guide marks. The continuity of the identity is very closely bonded to these cultural elements.The understanding of the modality to represent the identity is possible through the analysis of some of these cultural elements and of the correlations that these establish in the context of memory and oblivion. This paper analyzes the dynamics of these three elements: memory, identity and oblivion, in literature.

    To Collect in Order to Survive.Simona Mitroiu - 2011 - Cultura 8 (1):213-222.
    Following the distinctions made by Susan Pearce between souvenir collections, fetishism collections and systematic collections, the present study will underline the idea that, for Walter Benjamin, collection was a way to reconnect with the past and to reconstruct an image of what was destroyed. Every object collected by Benjamin was for him a souvenir of the European cultural identity.

    To Educate the Mind. Notes About Music and its Power to Remember.Simona Mitroiu & Carmen Rusu - 2010 - Cultura 7 (2):245-256.
    The main idea of this paper is that memories are the key elements of our identity and in order to access these elements it is sometimes necessary to use different techniques. Music is one of them and the education of the mind represents a safe direction to define and our cultural identity regardless the various social pressures.
