Rehearsing Mythic Memory: Cultural Memory, Intertextuality, and the Sitz im Leben of Habakkuk’s Prophecy

Chelsea Mak
Ambrose University Seminary thesis
Cultural memory theory as an interdisciplinary field of research is concerned with the usability of the past for the formation of identity in the present. Theorists argue that cultural memories are only re-appropriated and re-cast as they are found to be useful for contemporary communities facing new and complex circumstances. One medium through which a community’s memories may be reclaimed and reused is literature and, specifically, through the text forming work of intertextuality.
