Cultural Memories is the publishing project of the Centre
for the Study of Cultural Memory at the Institute of Modern Languages
Research, University of London. The Centre is international in scope
and promotes innovative research with a focus on interdisciplinary
approaches to memory.
This series supports the Centre by furthering original research in the
global field of cultural memory studies. In particular, it seeks to
challenge a monumentalizing model of memory in favour of a more fluid
and heterogeneous one, where history, culture and memory are seen as
complementary and intersecting. The series embraces new methodological
approaches, encompassing a wide range of technologies of memory in
cognate fields, including comparative studies, cultural studies, history,
literature , media and communication, and cognitive science. The aim of
Cultural Memories is to encourage and enhance research in the broad
field of memory studies while, at the same time, pointing in new directions,
providing a unique platform for creative and forward-looking scholarship in the discipline.
