Comments My research explores the nexus of mind and society focusing on the transient linguistic, visual and/or sensory representations of memory and their interactive roles in the formation process of individual or collective cultural consciousness. I am particularly interested in how memory is used for the survival of individuals and communities in real or potential conflict/disaster situations that accompany traumatic experiences. To that end, I specialize in a cross-disciplinary methodology with quantitative cum qualitative text analytics to investigate representations of memory in the media, education, tourism, and heritage projects. My current project focuses on legitimization processes of memory-based social identity that impact both localized and transboundary peace initiatives.
