About this book

Considering both retrospective memories and the prospective employment of memories, Memory in a Mediated World examines troubled times that demand resolution, recovery and restoration. Its contributions provide empirically grounded analyses of how media are employed by individuals and social groups to connect the past, the present and the future.

Reviews

"This book makes a crucial intervention in the interdisciplinary study of mediated memory. Combining a meticulously contextualized array of methodological approaches with a remarkably diverse range of innovative case studies, the book is an impressive testimony to the ways in which memory, and the study of memory, can mobilize remembered pasts for present concerns and future projects." - Pieter Vermeulen, University of Leuven, Belgium

"Nowhere does social memory matter as much as in troubled times. This book brings together a diverse group of scholars who consider the roles played by collective memory in affecting the unsettled circumstances that follow upon natural disaster, war, uprising and other kinds of crisis. Memory, for these authors, holds enormous productive potential, a potential unpacked here in great detail. A highly useful intervention on an aspect of memory studies that has not been sufficiently examined to date." - Barbie Zelizer, Annenberg School for Communication, USA

"This fascinating volume cuts the often inseparable knot that associates collective trauma, shared recollections, social crises and disintegration. The fresh perspective here suggested aims to define the mediation of memory especially in the digital age as a fertile ground for opportunities to voice, negotiate and reshape personal and social identities and to face present and future challenges. The comprehensive empirically-based cases explore the promise, which lies in contents and processes of mediation, to serve as a bridge over troubled water." - Motti Neiger, Netanya Academic College, Israel
