3) Public, Transnational, and Transitional Memories

4) Technologies of Memory,

5) Terror, Violence and Disasters,

A strong emphasis is placed on the interdisciplinary breadth of Memory Studies with contributions from leading international scholars in sociology, anthropology, philosophy, biology, film studies, media studies, archive studies, literature and history. The Handbook addresses the core concerns and foundations of the field while indicating new directions in Memory Studies.
