Thesis

Memory modalities in diverse types of memory institutions  (working title)

Abstract:

In the development of a digital collaborative environment that allows memory and cultural institutions to collaborate with the public, there has been a call for institutional users to consider participatory approaches in the project design and implementation. Emerging participatory-interaction practices, amongst which digital storytelling, participatory digital exhibition, digital photo-elicitation, participatory archive, are developing as well as new kinds of memory modalities. The research project has two objectives: a) conduct cross-section research of the digital memory modalities of all involved memory institutions in their socio-technical potential for participatory interaction (in difference to interactivity) and in respect to their specific forms in the diverse types of memory institutions; and b) investigate best practices of memory modalities facilitating participatory approaches will be collected across Europe.
