In recent years, scholarly interest in the interconnections between social movements and memory has been growing significantly. In this article, we outline and discuss this emerging focus of research on the movement-memory nexus with the goal of systematizing it and pointing to ways forward. We begin by delineating the interdisciplinary nature of the field, its central characteristics, and its disciplinary and conceptual foundations. We then identify and discuss three major areas of research, namely, research on memories of movements, memory in movements, and movements about memory. We close by outlining the debates, insights and pose several questions with the aim of bringing the different strands of research on the movementmemory nexus into a closer dialogue.

Abstract

In recent years, scholarly interest in the interconnections between social movements and memory has been growing significantly. In this article, we outline and discuss this emerging focus of research on the movement-memory nexus with the goal of systematizing it and pointing to ways forward. We begin by delineating the interdisciplinary nature of the field, its central characteristics, and its disciplinary and conceptual foundations. We then identify and discuss three major areas of research, namely, research on memories of movements, memory in movements, and movements about memory. We close by outlining the debates, insights and pose several questions with the aim of bringing the different strands of research on the movementmemory nexus into a closer dialogue.
