The Persistence of Memory

Remembering slavery in Liverpool, 'slaving capital of the world'

Jessica Moody

Liverpool University Press

Liverpool Studies in International Slavery LUP

  • First book about Liverpool's public memory of slavery
  • Proposes a new understanding of dissonant histories as dissonant because of their persistence as a contested public debate over time
  • First book to map the public memory of a dissonant past from history to memory
  • Goes beyond the overt acts of public memory at the end of the millennium by analysing the 'spaces in between', the background noise of public debate
  • Proposes a transferable methodology for other studies concerning the evolution of a public memory of a specific history as it relates to place and identity
