Settler and Creole Re-enactment is a collection of essays from around the world (Americas, Europe, Australia, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand) dealing with historical re-enactments undertaken by people born and raised in countries to which their ancestors did not belong. The relation of settlers and creoles to the past is therefore bifurcated, partly belonging to the land in which presently they live, and partly toa different place that is only remembered as home. How then does re-enactment help forge an imagined community with people whose claims on the land are immemorial, a community that includes not only indigenes buta metropolitan culture that is no longer cognate with the realities ofsettler life, or even with what settlers remember of it? What kinds ofshifts and interruptions in historical perspective are necessary to make this a credible history of change and memory,or is it more like a fiction? Is fiction under these circumstances a useful and necessary addition to history, or not?
"Explores the uncalculated and incalculable elements in historical re-enactment--unexpected emotions, unplanned developments--and locates them in countries where settlers were trying to establish national identities derived from metropolitan cultures inevitably affected by the land itself andthe people who had been there before them"--Provided by publisher
