Reviews

'This book serves as an excellent introduction to the ?eld. However, it also lays out a much-needed research agenda of collective memory studies in new important areas of mediated communication.'

- Ingrid Volkmer, Journal of Communication

'On Media Memory is an interesting collection that offers a number of ways to think through how media memories are constructed, connected, created, invoked, transmitted, eluded to, enacted and re-enacted in social, cultural, individual and collective ways. As the editors are academics based in Israel, there a large number of essays that focus on the interface of media/memory in Israeli culture. These provide insight into how media and memory were mobilized in the formation of Israel and continue to be mobilized in contemporary Israeli politics. Essays also reflect on how the various media and memory is being used to critique the ongoing military occupation of Palestine. For this reason, the collection may be particularly useful for researchers who are critically examining the mediation of Israeli nationalism and its contemporary political implications. This book is challenging, insightful and informative and will definitely be of interest to researchers from a range of disciplines exploring the relationship between media and memory.'

- Debi Withers, Memory Studies

'On Media Memory studies media memory from the perspective of collectivememory, which is considered as 'an inherently mediated phenomenon' (p. 3). While this insight is not new, the book sets out and succeeds to provide refreshing perspectives on the multi-faced and complex nature of media memory, and to pose new questions that result both from recent developments (e.g. the impact of mobile digital media on the nature, process and changes in media memory) and changing insights into meaning creation through memory.'

- Hilde Van Den Bulck, Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television
