    Agreeing to Disagree on the Legacies of Recent History: Memory, Pluralism and Europe After 1989.Siobhan Kattago - 2009 - European Journal of Social Theory 12 (3):375-395.
    Since 1989, social change in Europe has moved between two stories. The first being a politics of memory emphasizing the specificity of culture in national narratives, and the other extolling the virtues of the Enlightenment heritage of reason and humanity. While the Holocaust forms a central part of West European collective memory, national victimhood of former Communist countries tends to occlude the centrality of the Holocaust. Highlighting examples from the Estonian experience, this article asks whether attempts to find one single (...)

    Why the World Matters: Hannah Arendt’s Philosophy of New Beginnings.Siobhan Kattago - 2013 - The European Legacy 18 (2):170-184.
    Hannah Arendt?s philosophical project is an untiring attempt to argue that the world with all its failures and weaknesses does and should matter. Refusing to succumb to the destructive tendency within modernity, she cultivates creativity, action and responsibility. One way to appreciate the originality of Arendt?s philosophy of action and new beginnings is via her reading of two thinkers who were part of what she terms, ?the great tradition.? If most commentary deals either with Heidegger?s influence on Arendt?s thought or (...)

  4. Ambiguous Memory: The Nazi Past and German National Identity.Siobhan Kattago - 2001 - Praeger.
    Ambiguous Memory examines the role of memory in the building of a new national identity in reunified Germany. The author maintains that the contentious debates surrounding contemporary monumnets to the Nazi past testify to the ambiguity of German memory and the continued link of Nazism with contemporary German national identity. The book discusses how certain monuments, and the ways Germans have viewed them, contribute to the different ways Germans have dealt with the past, and how they continue to deal with (...)

  5. Ashgate Research Companion to Memory Studies.Siobhan Kattago (ed.) - 2015 - Abingdon, UK: Routledge.
    Memory has long been a subject of fascination for poets, artists, philosophers and historians. This timely volume, edited by Siobhan Kattago, examines how past events are remembered, contested, forgotten, learned from and shared with others. Each author in The Ashgate Research Companion to Memory Studies has been asked to reflect on his or her research companions as a scholar, who studies memory. The original studies presented in the volume are written by leading experts, who emphasize both the continuity of heritage (...)

    Encountering the Past Within the Present: Modern Experiences of Time.Siobhan Kattago - 2020 - Abingdon, UK: Routledge.
    Encountering the Past within the Present: Modern Experiences of Time examines different encounters with the past from within the present – whether as commemoration, nostalgia, silence, ghostly haunting or combinations thereof. Taking its cue from Hannah Arendt’s definition of the present as a time span lying between past and future, the author reflects on the old philosophical question of how to live the good life – not only with others who are physically with us but also with those whose presence (...)

  9. How Common is Our Common World? Hannah Arendt and the Rise of the Social.Siobhan Kattago - 2012 - Problemos 81:98-108.
    Based on Hannah Arendt’s distinction between the public and the private, the paper argues that it is possible to reconcile her seemingly elite democracy with the political ideals upon which the polis is constructed, namely, plurality, freedom and action. Such reconciliation is possible when the political is understood as the space between people, rather than as a carefully constructed physical space that excludes all aspects of privacy. Likewise, the paper argues that the rise of the social represents not only the (...)

  11. Memory and Representation in Contemporary Europe: The Persistence of the Past.Siobhan Kattago - 2012 - Abingdon, UK: Routledge.
    Why do certain places and not others symbolically capture the past and freeze time? Likewise, why does the process of memory, as a fluid and changing activity, seem to prevent its own solidification? Memory and Representation in Contemporary Europe reflects not only on the persistence of the past as a theme linked to modernity, media and time, but also discusses the politics of memory within a changing Europe. Drawing on the theoretical work of Hannah Arendt, Isaiah Berlin and Zygmunt Bauman, (...)

    Statelessness, Refugees and Hospitality: Reading Arendt and Kant in the Twenty-First Century.Siobhan Kattago - 2019 - New German Critique 1 (46):15-40.
    As the war in Syria and the destruction of the Calais camp in France in 2016 bitterly demonstrate, declarations of human rights and asylum devolve into empty promises without a common sense of solidarity and an implicit understanding that we share responsibility for the world and one another. Today’s refugee crisis demonstrates that many of the problems that Hannah Arendt identified during the first half of the twentieth century are still with us. National security and the state of exception increasingly (...)

  14. The End of the European Honeymoon: Refugees, Resentment and the Clash of Solidarities.Siobhan Kattago - 2017 - Anthropological Journal of European Cultures 1 (26):35-52.
    With the rise of populism, European solidarity risks being eroded by a clash of solidarities based on nation and religion. Ranging from hospitality to hostility, ‘refugees welcome’ to ‘close the borders’, asylum seekers from Syria and other war-torn countries test the very ideas upon which the EU was founded: human rights, tolerance and the free movement of people. European solidarity is not only rooted in philosophical ideas of equality and freedom but also in the memory of nationalism, war and violence. (...)
