In this chapter, we consider how collaborative remembering informs our understanding of the functions of autobiographical remembering. After a brief overview of the literature on functions of autobiographical remembering, we consider how the nature of collaborative remembering supports existing frameworks for thinking about function, and suggest additional functions that are important to examine. We then ask whether collaborative remembering has a special significance for fulfilling functions of autobiographical remembering. Finally, we note that experiences of conflict and harm pose particular challenges for collaborative remembering that underscore potential future directions for this research, including the potential importance of collaborative remembering for helping to resolve past instances of conflict and harm.
