TL;DR: In this paper, the preservation and presentation practices of early sound systems, as well as the presentation of film sound in the spaces provided by film heritage institutions, are analyzed to bring different dimensions of film sounds to the fore, such as material, human, technological, institutional, experiential, and memorial dimensions.
Abstract: What is the nature of film sound? How does it change through time? How can film sound be conceptually defined? To address these issues, this work assumes the perspective of film preservation and presentation practices, describing the preservation of early sound systems, as well as the presentation of film sound in the spaces provided by film heritage institutions. The preservation and presentation practices analyzed bring different dimensions of film sound to the fore, such as its material, human, technological, institutional, experiential, and memorial dimensions. The definition of film sound is constructed around the concepts of material form, trace, and performance, which explain its transitory nature and its many facets.

TL;DR: In a recent collection of essays on memory and amnesia in the postmodern world, cultural critic Andreas Huyssen considers how nationalism, literature, art, politics, and the media are obsessed with the past.
Abstract: In this new collection of essays on memory and amnesia in the postmodern world, cultural critic Andreas Huyssen considers how nationalism, literature, art, politics, and the media are obsessed with the past. The great paradox of our fin-de-siecle culture is that novelty is even more associated with memory than with future expectation. Drawing heavily on the dilemmas of contemporary Germany, Huyssen's discussion of cultural memory illustrates the nature of contemporary nationalism, the work of such artists and thinkers as Anselm Kiefer, Alexander Kluge, and Jean Baudrillard, and many others. The book includes illustrations from contemporary Germany.
