In this session, Dr Francesca Sobande explores the role of digital technology in experiences of memory-making, including forms of nostalgia, reminiscing, and memorialising.
The discussion outlines some of the ways that digital remix culture has developed in recent years, while reflecting on the relationship between this and the creation of collective memories, both before and during the COVID-19 crisis. Focusing on themes such as humour, care, commodification, intimacy, grief, and time, Sobande asks people to remember when? and critically consider how their memories may be entangled with digital culture.
