One of the central purposes of the Memory Studies Association is to facilitate exchange between everyone interested in the field. With this in mind, we list here Centers, Institutes and Networks engaged in the study of memory – as well as other useful online resources. Please inform us of any websites you would like us to add here:

We are honoured to have Jenny Wüstenberg as the network chair.
