The latest issue of History & Memory , Vol. 33, no. 2 (2021) is available online. 

This issue of History & Memory is marked by its emphasis on narratives of power and the turn to visual and digital sources. When read together, the five articles on the construction and politics of memory in Russia, Mexico, Angola, Germany, and Poland shed much light on the central role that conflicts over memory continue to play in our times of radical disjuncture and increasing isolation which have only heightened our turn to and dependence upon visual and digital means of memory, meaning and being.

History & Memory focuses on a wide range of issues relating to the formation of collective memory, the role of historical memory in modern and premodern cultures, and the relationship between historical research and images of the past in different societies and cultures. It aims to explore not only official representations of the past in public monuments and commemorations but also the role of oral history and personal narratives, the influence of the new media in shaping historical consciousness, and the renewed relevance of history writing for emerging nations and social conflicts.
