International contributors integrate research from numerous disciplines including social and cognitive psychology, neuroscience, discursive psychology, philosophical psychology and cognitive linguistics to provide a new awareness of the central role that cultural, social and technological contexts play in determining individual and collective recollections at multiple, yet interconnected, levels of human experience.Divided into three sections, cognitive psychology, social and cultural psychology, and cognitive linguistics and philosophical psychology, Stone and Bietti present a breadth of perspectives on memory in context and bridge gaps across disciplines. Topics covered include:the construction of self-identity in memoryflashbulb memoriesscaffolding memorythe cultural psychology of remembering.This book allows researchers to understand the different types of work undertaken in related fields and to appreciate the importance of context in understanding when, how and what is remembered at any given recollection. It will appeal to researchers and academics from the areas of cognitive and social psychology, as well as those in related disciplines who want to learn more about the advancing field of memory studies.
