The special issue of the journal is devoted to the specifics of addressing the past in the conditions of the cultural frontier. The concept of frontier has long ceased to be associated exclusively with geographical boundaries, becoming an ontological characteristic of the existence of local communities and individuals in the modern world. The border state imprint not only on the interaction of communities with each other, but also on the formation of new memorial practices, which turn into a specific way of communication - not only with the past, but also with the present and the future. The articles included in the issue reveal complex and diverse ways of superimposing collective memories on the border cultural landscape, as well as demonstrating methodological, historical and cultural aspects of the analysis of cultural memory in the context of frontiers research.
