Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"All said, this handbook is highly recommended, providing as it does an illustrative overview of both the opportunities and difficulties inherent in such a multidisciplinary, internationally populated field."Daniel Mai in: KULT_online 22/2010 "Mit seiner internationalen Bilanz weist dieser Band auf jeden Fall nach, dass das kulturelle Gedächtnis eines jener "Konvergenzfelder" ist, auf dem der interdisziplinäre Austausch ebenso anregend wie weiterführend sein kann."Malte Thießen in: http://hsozkult.geschichte.hu-berlin.de/rezensionen/2009-1-061 "Die konzise und prägnant gehaltenen Beiträge des Handbuches spiegeln den aktuellen Forschungsstand, regen mit ihren Literaturhinweisen zur weiteren Beschäftigung und Auseinandersetzung mit Fragen der Forschung zum kulturellen Gedächtnis an. [...]Das kollektive Gedächtnis und seine Wirkungsweisen sind zu Recht ein bevorzugtes Arbeitsgebiet einer modernen Kulturwissenschaft, wie das vorliegende Handbuch trefflich zeigt."Till Kinzel in: Informationsmittel (IFB) 1-2/2008
