This is the first practical guide to research methods in memory studies. The 12 chapters provide students and researchers with clear descriptions of particular methods of research for: investigating community remembering and memory in personal narratives; exploring national memory and commemoration, and cultural memory and heritage; attending to disrupted memory; examining how memory is communicated in everyday life, and how it is manifested in emergent and resurgent ethnicities; focusing on the production of social memory in the media; and analysing the dynamics of remembering in public apologies, and in testimonies offered by Holocaust survivors. It provides expert appraisals of a range of techniques and approaches in memory studies. It focuses on methods and methodology as a way to help bring unity and coherence to this new field of study.
