Abstract

This article argues that remembrances of the past always occur within a conceptual framework of contemporary ways of mapping or interpreting the world and as such they are implicit in the creation or imagination of the present. In particular, the article analyses how nation-state orientated cartographies have impacted upon the re-interpretation and remembering of the 1600 and 1601 sieges of Kanije (Nagykanizsa) in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Ottoman and Turkish narratives through a comparative study with various earlier seventeenth-and eighteenth-century descriptions of the event.
