[en] Despite the boom in scholarship in both Comics Studies and Memory Studies, the two fields rarely interact—especially with issues beyond the representation of traumatic and autobiographical memories in comics. With a focus on the roles played by styles and archives—in their physical and metaphorical manifestations—this edited volume offers an original intervention, highlighting several novel ways of thinking about comics and memory as comics memory. Bringing together scholars as well as cultural actors, the contributions combine studies on European and North American comics and offer a representative overview of the main comics genres and forms, including superheroes, Westerns, newspaper comics, diary comics, comics reportage and alternative comics. In considering the many manifestations of memory in comics as well as the functioning and influence of institutions, public and private practices, the book exemplifies new possibilities for understanding the complex entanglements of memory and comics.
[fr] Si la bande dessinée et la mémoire culturelle constituent deux champs en plein essor, il est rare de voir les deux domaines interagir au-delà d’un transfert des théories du trauma et de l’autobiographie vers la bande dessinée. Par le prisme des styles et des archives – dans leurs manifestations matérielles comme symboliques – ce volume collectif propose une intervention originale et met en évidence plusieurs nouvelles manières de penser les rapports entre bande dessinée et mémoire. En combinant des analyses stylistiques avec des études du rôle joué par différentes institutions patrimoniales en Europe et aux Etats-Unis, ainsi qu’en donnant voix à différents acteurs culturels, ce livre entend ouvrir de nouvelles pistes pour comprendre les manières dont la bande dessinée donne sens à la mémoire culturelle et entretient sa propre histoire.
