Memory politics as a field is an outcome of representation crisis in social sciences. But this field has its own weaknesses that prevents presenting a coherent research program. Eliminating theory and conceptual defects of the field and increasing its objects are the most important strategies to improve it to a coherent research program. But how someone can eliminate its current conceptual defects? In this article, we are going to present preparatories about a new memory politics theory that make it an independent research program with its own objects. So in the first step, we will obviate theory and conceptual defects of current memory politics and then, we will say what kind of ideas and materials fit into this new approach.
