Pluriformiteit in vrijheid

Translated title of the contribution: Pluriformity in freedom

Research output: Working paper/discussion paperWeb articleProfessional


In the multifaceted culture of remembrance in which we commemorate World War II today, traditions are strongly present. Fixed moments on the calendar and fixed locations to return to annually are not the only way to stop and look backward or forward. Still, such markers in time and place fulfill an important role, helping to focus collectively on dramatic periods of history and the impact they have to this day. Traditions are often seen as the embodiment of continuity. Similarly, rituals, seem to emphasize stability over the years. But a closer look reveals that they simultaneously move with the times. In often subtle ways, they reflect contemporary interests and preferences. Does this also apply to the rituals surrounding the celebration of freedom that are central to this theme issue?
