This volume is a collection of scholarly articles that maps the concept of memory across a number of academic disciplines. Drawing from a range of academic areas, including Cultural Theory, Film Studies, History, History of Ideas, Literature, Media Studies, Music and Philosophy, the book will provide readers with an engaging introduction to the growing field of Memory Studies. Each of the eight articles approaches the subject of memory from the perspectives of a specific discipline with the broad aim being to identify how and why memory has been important for the particular field being represented.
