Recovering Memory is Regaining Dignity: Collective Memory and Migration in France

Abstract : In comparison with the rest of Europe, France is an old country of immigration, France emerged as a country of destination for a large number of immigrants from about the middle of the 19th century. Considerations of collective memory and the incorporation of immigrants into it, provide one way of problematising immigration history. A thorough analysis should focus on collective attitudes, commemorative practices and public discourses linked to immigration. One needs to grasp and explain how history and the inclusion of migrants into the national historical landscape relates to the social incorporation of immigrant groups in general. Furthermore, actual forms of commemoration need to be discussed, and finally, the role of immigrants themselves within the construction and transmission of collective memory should come to the fore.
