EMERGING MEMORY: PHOTOGRAPHS OF COLONIAL ATROCITY IN DUTCH CULTURAL REMEMBRANCE. Paul Bijl. Amsterdam University Press, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 258 pp. with 41 ills. 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9789089645906 In English.
Publisher's description: Dutch commentators repeatedly claim that their nation has forgotten its violent colonial past. In this compelling study, however, Paul Bijl demonstrates that photographs of colonial atrocities have appeared consistently in the Dutch public sphere and remain widely available in print, on television, and online. The nation, he argues, has not forgotten; rather, the Dutch have failed to absorb the meaning of these ubiquitous images and the scenes they depict.
