The book consists of 16 case-studies on issues relating to memory, the majority of which stem from a conference in April 2005 at the Institute of Advanced Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Public memory is tackled from a variety of angles and various disciplines, ranging across the humanities, the social sciences and the exact sciences. First and foremost the reader will obtain a comprehensive overview of the results of scholarship published in recent years about public memory. Second, the book provides a profound insight into how public memory works within societies of different nature and at different junctures of their histories. The volume begins by offering a glimpse into individual memory, and then goes on to discuss religious societies, ethnic groups, secular groups, institutions and larger segments of society, ultimately reaching the nation state. The authors, each in his or her own discipline, have addressed the complexities involved in the creation of public memory, the media that promote and preserve it within groups and societies, and finally the nature of memory and how it -behaves- during changing circumstances and changing regimes."

This edited collection provides an inter- and intra-disciplinary discussion of the critical role context plays in how and when individuals and groups remember the past. International contributors integrate key research from a range of disciplines, including social and cognitive psychology, discursive psychology, philosophy/philosophical psychology and cognitive linguistics, to increase awareness of the central role that cultural, social and technological contexts play in determining individual and collective recollections at multiple, yet interconnected, levels of human experience. Divided into three parts, cognitive and psychological perspectives, social and cultural perspectives, and cognitive linguistics and philosophical perspectives, Stone and Bietti present a breadth of research on memory in context. Topics covered include: the construction of self-identity in memory flashbulb memories scaffolding memory the cultural psychology of remembering social aspects of memory the mnemonic consequences of silence emotion and memory eyewitness identification multimodal communication and collective remembering. Contextualizing Human Memory allows researchers to understand the variety of work undertaken in related fields, and to appreciate the importance of context in understanding when, how and what is remembered at any given recollection. The book will appeal to researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the fields of cognitive and social psychology, as well as those in related disciplines interested in learning more about the advancing field of memory studies.

Memory: Interdisciplinary Approaches arrays the most current research and thinking on the cognitive, social, and neural aspects of memory. An international group of experts discusses the domains of working memory and the modularity of storage processes while other contributors examine the social and developmental consequences of memory. This volume represents the most comprehensive reviews of "frontline" memory work to date. This collection is based on the first series of G. Stanley Hall Lectures sponsored by Williams College.

Research on spatial cognition is a rapidly evolving interdisciplinary enterprise for the study of spatial representations and cognitive spatial processes, be they real or abstract, human or machine. Spatial cognition brings together a variety of - search methodologies: empirical investigations on human and animal orientation and navigation; studies of communicating spatial knowledge using language and graphical or other pictorial means; the development of formal models for r- resenting and processing spatial knowledge; and computer implementations to solve spatial problems, to simulate human or animal orientation and navigation behavior, or to reproduce spatial communication patterns. These approaches can interact in interesting and useful ways: Results from empirical studies call for formal explanations both of the underlying memory structures and of the processes operating upon them; we can develop and - plement operational computer models obeying the relationships between objects and events described by the formal models; we can empirically test the computer models under a variety of conditions, and we can compare the results to the - sults from the human or animal experiments. A disagreement between these results can provide useful indications towards the re nement of the models.

Memory has long been ignored by rhetoricians because the written word has made memorization virtually obsolete. Recently however, as part of a revival of interest in classical rhetoric, scholars have begun to realize that memory offers vast possibilities for today's writers. Synthesizing research from rhetoric, psychology, philosophy, and literary and composition studies, this volume brings together many historical and contemporary theories of memory. Yet its focus is clear: memory is a generator of knowledge and a creative force which deserves attention at the beginning of and throughout the writing process. This volume emphasizes the importance of recognizing memory's powers in an age in which mass media influence us all and electronic communication changes the way we think and write. It also addresses the importance of the individual memory and voice in an age which promotes conformity. Written in a strong, lively personal manner, the book covers a great deal of scholarly material. It is never overbearing, and the extensive bibliography offers rich vistas for further study.

This engagingly written introduction to the cognitive sciences examines the historical and contemporary issues, and research findings of the core cognitive science disciplines, including cognitive psychology, neuroscience, language, philosophy, and artificial intelligence. For each of the core disciplines of cognitive science, the historical development and classic research studies are presented in one chapter and current research development and issues follow in a second chapter. The student is given insight into the way each discipline has contributed to the growth of cognitive science and what directions research is taking in the future. This text assumes no background on the part of the reader.

„Interdisziplinäre Zugänge zum technologiegestützten Lernen“ war der Titel einer Tagung des DFG-Graduiertenkollegs „Qualitätsverbesserung im E-Learning durch rückgekoppelte Prozesse“ an der TU Darmstadt im Sommer 2009. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes sind aus Vorträgen und Diskussionen dieser Tagung hervorgegangen. Sie repräsentieren neue Perspektiven auf technologiegestütztes Lernen aus unterschiedlichen disziplinären Blickwinkeln. Unter vier leitenden Gesichtspunkten wenden sich die Beiträge der Frage zu, was im Bereich des technologiegestützten Lernens als „Qualität“ verstanden und entwickelt werden kann: Teil 1: Learning (in) Networks. Vom Lernen in Netzen zu lernenden Netzen – und zurück Teil 2: Community-adaptive Systeme – von Lernern lernen, eine kluge Idee? Teil 3: Unterbrechend oder nahtlos? Nutzerschnittstellen für technologie-gestützes Lernen Teil 4: Qualität und Kompetenz “Interdisciplinary Approaches to Technology-enhanced Learning” was the title of a conference held at TU Darmstadt, Germany, in 2009. The chapters of this book result from the talks and discussions that took place during this conference. They represent novel perspectives on technology-enhanced learning from various disciplinary angles. Focusing on four main areas, the authors explore what is “quality” in technology-enhanced learning and how this quality can be further improved: Part 1: Learning (in) Networks. From Learning in the Network to the Learning Network and Back Part 2: Community-Adaptive Systems – Learning from learners, a smart Idea? Part 3: Disruptive or seamless? User Interfaces for Technology-Enhanced Learning Part 4: Quality and Competences
