“No topic is more important for a consolidating field like memory studies than methodology. How was the work that established the field done? What approaches will advance us into its next stage of growth? This important volume, and the essays that comprise it, are exceptionally helpful, and will underwrite the next stage of research in this increasingly important field. An essential contribution!” (Jeffrey K. Olick, Professor of Sociology and History, University of Virginia, USA, and co-president of the Memory Studies Association)
