Event description

Description

The Internet is becoming an everyday space where identities and memories are not only stored, but also shaped and negotiated. User generated content from websites and social media is often dismissed as frivolous, unmediated, and apparently spontaneous. There is however, also growing interest in how user generated content might be used in conjunction with more official forms of knowledge.

This under researched area is of particular importance in an increasingly digital age. Our challenge is to consider the Internet not just as a tool for preserving histories, but as an emergent space where diverse memories and identites are actively shaped, contested and negotiated.

This one day conference will discuss such issues as "What is the nature of digital memories and identities?"; "Is online memory different from offline memory?"; "How does the researcher approach these digital constructions of memory and use them in their work?"
