REMEMBERING AS A SOCIOCULTURAL PROCESS (2019)

Wagoner, B. Brescó, I. Awad S.H.

It will be of interest to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as researchers in the fields of memory studies or cultural psychology.

MEMORY IN THE WILD (NIELS BOHR PROFESSORSHIP LECTURES IN CULTURAL PSYCHOLOGY) (2020)

Wagoner, B., Brescó, I., & Zadeh, S.
Moving out of the laboratory and into nature, it becomes untenable to locate memory strictly in the head. Instead, memory appears as a materially extended and socially distributed process, embedded in culture and history. This book explores the complex relationships between practices of remembering and the environments in which they take place. It advances a novel set of concepts developed from ecological, cognitive, cultural and narrative currents in psychology and beyond to analyse (1) the trajectories of autobiographical remembering, (2) the relationship between individual and collective memory, (3) memory and cultural transmission, as well as (4) various methodological techniques for investigating memory in nature.
