#15, History

In this issue, our contributors unravel the making and remaking of experiences, of History. From the personal, from the collective, there is a sense that history is not a one-off event. It is in constant flux, ordering and disrupting; it lingers on in memory and in the future to shape our lives, our futures, and our stories.
