This article critically engages with the concept of cosmopolitan memory, and it provides an empirical contribution to the relevant debate by drawing upon a study of focus group discussions with Greek audiences remembering global disasters. The article argues that focus group participants' memories of these events place them within a global community of viewers simultaneously witnessing the same events. However, their framing of these events does not necessarily challenge the primacy of the nation as a moral community, therefore lacking the moral dimension implicit in the concept of cosmopolitan memory.
