We are developing a theoretical multi-cultural framework for working on the intersubjectivity of memory with a focus on what has been left out of the analysis: unporcessed dimension of social experiences of traumatic loss, focusing from a bottom-up approach, building on illuminating the latent, private, intimate, individual/personal dimension. In order to reconceptualize our work, we build on a re-reading of the Halbwachsian work on memory (ex. Namer's "undercurrents of memory" and "internal reciprocity") and other contemorary authors worldwide.
