About this book

Memory studies is a nascent and multidisciplinary research field, drawing from an impressive array of qualitative investigative methods deployed to do memory research. The authors in this collection offer an explicit engagement with the ‘doing’ of memory research. The contributions demonstrate how attention to methodology reveals rich insights about memory and its links to place and identity.

About the authors

Danielle Drozdzewski is a Senior Lecturer in Human Geography at Stockholm University, Sweden.
Carolyn Birdsall is Assistant Professor of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Reviews

“No topic is more important for a consolidating field like memory studies than methodology. How was the work that established the field done? What approaches will advance us into its next stage of growth? This important volume, and the essays that comprise it, are exceptionally helpful, and will underwrite the next stage of research in this increasingly important field. An essential contribution!” (Jeffrey K. Olick, Professor of Sociology and History, University of Virginia, USA, and co-president of the Memory Studies Association)
