    In this chapter, we provide concluding remarks on the edited volume, Collaborative Remembering: Theories, Research, and Applications. We first discuss common themes that emerge across the chapters. Specifically, we discuss points of overlap and contrast between research and applications, costs and benefits of collaboration, accuracy, scaffolding, the shared nature of the original experience, technology, and culture. Given these themes, we then propose that future research should consider the context and goals of collaboration and the nature of individual differences among and within groups. We end the book with a call to integrate methods and concepts from across fields and perspectives.
