Remembering and Imagining in Human Development: Fairness and Social Movements in Ireland

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningfagfællebedømt


I have two goals in this chapter. First, I conceptualize remembering and imagining as dual processes of human development that can be thought of as being linked like an infinity symbol. There is a continuous looping from the past to the future, and back again, always converging in the present. The metaphor illustrates the continuous temporal interconnections between remembering and imagining and the impact these dual processes have on present thoughts, feelings, and actions. Second, I illustrate the ways moral appraisals in the present—specifically, how people judge what are, and are not, considered fair or unfair economic practices—are informed by remembering and imagining. I draw on ethnographic observations and interviews from a series of demonstrations in Ireland to illustrate these theoretical insights.
