Whose memory and why: A commentary on power and the construction of memory
Author(s): Sandra Obradović
Published in: Culture & Psychology
Abstract: The present commentary explores the implicit and explicit role of power in shaping what is remembered and why. By addressing the three papers in this section it argues for the need to more openly consider how power relations, particularly asymmetrical power relations, come to shape the construction of memory. Implications of acknowledging power in memory studies are discussed.
