Collaborative Remembering

This chapter outlines a cultural dynamic model of the constructive process of cultural influences on collaborative remembering. The text applies the model to analyze two kinds of collaborative remembering: one takes place in the most intimate and immediate social context of family where parents and children share memories together; the other takes place in a remote, metaphysical space where autobiographical writers tell their stories to a potentially infinite and yet anonymous audience. The analysis illuminates the dynamic process in which culture shapes the function and accessibility and, further, the style and content of collaborative remembering of personal and vicarious experiences. The consequences of different modes of collaborative remembering for personal memory are then further discussed.

Keywords:   culture, collaborative remembering, memory sharing, autobiography, social media, personal memory, vicarious memory
