Abstract : The project 'Disrupted Histories, Recovered Pasts' forming the focus of this Special Issue has researched biographical experiences that have undergone a rupture as a result of brutal political, social and/or economic changes, linked especially with war, colonization/decolonization, migration and exile. These personal biographical experiences have tended to find themselves on the margins of national and/or academic historical narratives. In this final paper of our Special Issue we share the open-ended process of co-production, crosscase learning, and synthesis that accompanied case research, focusing especially on our systematic cross-case engagement, which involved sharing and theorising content and experiences across our case-studies, and the commonalities and differences we identified across our case-studies through this process. We outline the steps we took in this process to sharing what we know, find 'points of articulation' across our case-studies and to identify themes emerging across our research. We also consider the multiple ways in which social forces combine to produce different forms of forgetfulness, helping to erase particular types of knowledge, voices and experiences.
