Abstract

Collective memory has been the subject of productive interactions within the social sciences ever since its initial conceptualization. Employing a social interactionist framework in which large-scale phenomena are empirically investigated as interactions between cognition and social dynamics, the article presents psychology's contribution to understanding the formation and the dynamics of collective memories.
