Abstract:The dissertation expands the historiography of memory by shedding light on vernacular, as opposed to public memory. In doing so, it challenges the conceptual walls placed between "history" and "memory" and calls for a more nuanced interpretation of their relationship. By injecting the history of memory into that of the family, it sheds light on an essential and neglected aspect of the bourgeois emotional universe. Furthermore, it enhances our understanding of the family by uncovering the ways in which family has been used to order daily life.
