ABSTRACT

This journal volume is dedicated to the subject "Museums of Memory."

Memory researcher Daniel Schacter writes of the deep importance, both personal and social, of passing on stories from one generation to the next: “The need to preserve memories across intergenerational time," he says, "is a fundamental human imperative.”

With their storehouses of objects and their places where people can meet and talk, museums and historic sites play a vital role in the process of remembering and making sense of the past, even memories of the darker chapters in human history. Museums can also support personal healing. Old photographs and mementos enhance recall of personal memories, support storytelling, and may aid in psychological healing.

There are eight articles in this journal volume.
