Cultural Memories

Cultural Memories is a book series affiliated to the Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory at the Institute of Modern Languages Research. The work of the Centre is international in scope, and promotes innovative research with a focus on interdisciplinary approaches to memory. Published by Peter Lang, the book series supports the Centre by furthering its research in cultural memory.

Cultural Memories aims to bridge the gap between history, culture and memory, regarding them as complementary and intersecting sets within 'historical culture'. New methodological approaches are encouraged, encompassing a wide range of technologies of memory in cognate fields, including comparative studies, cultural studies, history, languages, literature, media and communication, the visual and performing arts, cognitive and neural science. While the series aims to enhance research in the broad field of memory studies, it also seeks to point in new directions, providing a unique platform for thought-provoking and forward-looking scholarship in the discipline.
