(p.27) Chapter 1 Affect, Haunting, and Memory Mapping
Mapping Memory

Kaitlin M. Murphy

Fordham University Press

In this chapter, the author more fully develops the theoretical contours of memory mapping. Grounded in study of the Salvadoran documentary El Lugar Más Pequeño (The Tiniest Place, 2011), the author investigates connections between: performative visuality as a means of transmitting embodied knowledge and place-making; haunting, memory, testimony, and affect. This chapter is guided by the following: How do we render visually and affectively knowable the ongoing negotiations of living among the ruins of history? What is the relationship between memory and affect? How might the lens of memory mapping offer new perceptions and understandings of the post-conflict period?

Keywords:   affect, civil war, documentary film, El Salvador, memory, place, testimony, violence
