By Margret Dörr, Heide Felden, Regina Klein, Hildegard Macha, Winfried Marotzki

Margret Dorr, Heide von Felden, Regina Klein, Hildegard Macha, Winfried Marotzki Die beschleunigte Veranderungsdynamik der modernen Gesellschaften hat dazu gefuhrt, dass Menschen sich in neuer Weise der eigenen Selbstbilder und Iden- taten durch Ruckgriff auf die Vergangenheit und die Archivierung von Erin- rungen zu versichern suchen. Derzeit haben Konzepte wie Erinnerungskultur," kommunikatives Gedachtnis," kulturelles Gedachtnis," globales Gedachtnis" wissenschaftlich und in der offentlichen Debatte Konjunktur.

Hierbei spielt der Ruckgriff auf die Vergangenheit und die Archivierung von Erinnerungen eine wesentliche Rolle
