Navigating Landscapes of Mediated Memory

Edited by Paul Wilson and Patrick McEntaggart
File type: eBook: pdf

A collection of essays centred on themes and issues emerging from the notion of digital memory.


These essays look to survey a broad set of takes/reflections/ideas and theories inspired by and emerging from the fast-developing notion of digital memory. As we rush headlong towards a point in cultural life where much of what we experience is mediated by some form of digital technology, this timely volume offers an inspiring critical set of examinations of the potential and perils of our seemingly new landscape of digital memory. The range of authors and disciplines reflects the far-reaching effects and implications of such a concept and the volume attempts to draw together a range of key critical concepts to illuminate, inspire and inform.
