Aleida and Jan Assmann
2017 Balzan Prize for Collective Memory
For their shared, inter- and transdisciplinary elaboration of the concept of “cultural memory” and its defining clarifications as a paradigm in the field of cultural studies, as well as in public debates; for a decades-long exchange about very different historical realities and models, which in a truly extraordinary way proved to be complementary; for the work carried out independently, of far-reaching impact, which presents collective memory as a requirement for the formation of the identity of religious and political communities.

Aleida Assmann ist seit 2014 emeritierte Professorin für Anglistische Literaturwissenschaft der Universität Konstanz

Jan Assmann ist seit 2003 emeritierer Professor für Aegyptologie der Universität Heidelberg
