Memory Studies is an international peer reviewed journal. It affords recognition, form, and direction to work in this nascent field, and provides a critical forum for dialogue and debate on the theoretical, empirical, and methodological issues central to a collaborative understanding of memory today.

Memory Studies examines the social, cultural, cognitive, political and technological shifts affecting how, what and why individuals, groups and societies remember, and forget. The journal responds to and seeks to shape public and academic discourses on the nature, manipulation, and contestation of memory in the contemporary era.

Despite the epistemological and causal significance attributed to memory in the study of such questions as the formation of personal and public identity, culture and politics, and social communities, there remains dramatic divergence on the basic concepts and methods of the area.

The field mobilises scholarship driven by problem or topic, rather than by singular method or tradition. We seek papers that highlight and deliberately negotiate divergence in backgrounds and assumptions, as opposed to those that avoid these issues.

Crucially, we welcome submissions which speak to a range of participants across memory studies.

Areas of dialogue and debate will include:

  • Everyday remembering
  • Collective, public, social and shared memory
  • Biography and history
  • Schema and narrative
  • The ethics of remembering and forgetting
  • Commemoration and remembrance
  • Organic and artificial memory
  • Media and mechanisms
  • Documentation and archive
  • Holocaust memory
  • Cosmopolitanism and globalization
  • Cultural memory and heritage
  • Catastrophe and trauma
  • Nation and nostalgia
  • Oral history and the culture of the witness
  • Memory and the politics of identity
