Abstract: Mais do que um signo de união sobre a responsabilidade da transmissão da memória, a pós-memória é separador de águas. Menosprezada pelas ciências sociais, subestimada pelos historiadores, endeusada nos estudos culturais e nas artes, o tema da memória das gerações seguintes às gerações testemunhais é um território controverso, por vezes conflituoso, de qualquer modo estranho. As causas são multíplices, e é quase escusado enumerar todos os limites apontados: ter sido elaborada no campo dos estudos literários e culturais como um defeito de teoria e de reflexão crítica, assumir a relação complexa que se criara, na década de 1990, nos Estados Unidos, sobre a elaboração da memória da Shoah, a problemática distinção entre próprio e impróprio, uma popularidade no âmbito de algumas vertentes de estudos que a tornaram um fetiche acrítico, como ocorre sempre com as modas culturais.
More than just a message of unity about our common responsibility for the transmission of memory, post-memory is a watershed. As much as it has been prized in cultural studies and the arts, the memory of the generations who follow those who bear witness has been underestimated by social scientists and historians. It is field that is controversial, at times conflictual, and always strange. The causes for this controversy are many and it is almost unnecessary to list all of the limits that have been noted: that the field was established within literary and cultural studies as a deformation of theory and critical reflection, that it has a complex relation, emerging in the 1990s in the United States of America, with the establishment of the memory of the Holocaust, that it establishes a problematic distinction between the proper and improper, and, as often happens with cultural fashions, that in some quarters its popularity has transformed it into an uncritical fetish.
