Media and Memory

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter will offer a critical introduction to the key issues, debates and ideas within memory studies research. It is not always clear from existing literature how and why memory studies (ranging from the sociological to the cognitive science approaches) should synthesise with media studies. The connections will be made explicit in this chapter. Drawing together foundational theories of memory from for example Halbwachs (1980), Nora (1989), Lowenthal (1996), Olick (1999), Bergson (2004), Ricoeur (2006) and Connerton (2008), the chapter will consider such theorisations of history, remembering, forgetting, amnesia, flashback, archive and nostalgia with a view to making very clear the connections and disconnections between these lines of thoughts and media studies.
