New PDF release: Hiroshima Traces: Time, Space, and the Dialectics of Memory

Remembering Hiroshima, town obliterated by means of the world's first nuclear assault, has been a sophisticated and very politicized procedure, as we research from Lisa Yoneyama's delicate research of the "dialectics of reminiscence. " She explores unconventional texts and dimensions of tradition curious about constituting Hiroshima memories—including historical past textbook controversies, discourses at the city's tourism and concrete renewal tasks, campaigns to maintain atomic ruins, survivors' testimonial practices, ethnic Koreans' narratives on eastern colonialism, and the feminized discourse on peace—in order to light up the politics of data concerning the prior and current.

One difference between Stong skor and Ske ba lies in the idea of the New Year for livestock, held in Ske ba on the second day of Lo sar, which is described as (Tsering Bum et al. 2008:40): a day for owners to serve their animals. In the morning, cattle, sheep, dogs, and pigs are given human food such as red bread and noodles. Cattle and sheep are given fresh winter grass. Livestock owners never beat animals on this day, for doing so brings bad luck. There is no such tradition in Stong skor. Instead, the second day of the New Year period is treated as any other except that it is a day for extensive visiting.
