Memory, Narrative, and the Autobiographical Process

Jens Brockmeier

Explorations in Narrative Psychology

  • Combines perspectives from the neurosciences, memory, and narrative psychology with insights from social and cultural memory studies
  • Explores how human subjects make sense of their experiences and memories, and how they do this within a variety of cultural worlds
  • Draws on and aligns itself with the project of narrative medicine
