This section of the Journal of Aesthetics and Culture is dedicated to the theme of transnational cultural memory. The papers of the dossier are written for the second meeting of the Summer School of the Nordic Research Network of memory studies, funded by NordForsk, hosted this year by Karlstad University on 20-21 June 2011. The dossier displays various approaches to the emerging topic of transnational memory studies, encompassing topical themes such as the remediation of transcultural memory, the ethics of memory in the age of globalization, the dynamics of cultural memory in the (re)-making of the national and the transnational, visions of transnational memory, the transnational archive, and socio-spatial aspects of the experience of displacement. The introductory papers are written by scholars from various backgrounds: history of ideas, philosophy, cultural geography, film studies, and literary studies, thus adhering to the principle of constituting memory studies as a truly interdisciplinary field.
