Summary
"Voices of Collective Remembering reviews various understandings of the term 'collective memory' as it is used in the humanities and social sciences. Drawing on this review, James V. Wertsch outlines a particular version of collective remembering grounded in the use of 'textual resources, ' especially narratives. This takes him into the special properties of narrative that shape this process and how these textual resources are produced and consumed. ProfessorWertsch brings these ideas to life by examining the rapid, massive transformation of collective memory during the transition from Soviet Russia to post-Soviet Russia. This natural laboratory has many unique features, but it also provides general insights into processes of collective memory formation, especially as carried out by modern states."--Publisher's description
