Creolizing Europe

Françoise Vergès

Liverpool University Press

Françoise Vergès applies creolization to the concrete context of the French-Reunion politics of remembrance and its persistent politics of oblivion in the former metropoles of colonial power. Taking the example of the museum project Maison des Civilisations et de l’Unité Réunionnaise, she discusses the unwillingness of the French government to recognize its colonial past. Her discussion on The Maison des Civilisations et de l’Unité Réunionnaise argues for a need to imagine a postcolonial museography for a society still undergoing creolization.
