Zoom Room 4A

The internet has the power to craft and mediate our historical narratives. It offers an unprecedented chance for experts and lay people, victors and victims, to make claims and counter-claims. Opportunities and challenges arise when harnessing digital tools (messaging applications, content sharing platforms, etc) for the memorialization of time and space. Through the lens of culture formation and archive building this session explore how people use the internet to render and connect historical narratives while offering participants a chance to contribute their knowledge and experiences in this context. I invite participants to explore: 1. The social and technical aspects of history and historicising. 2. The effect of inaccessible archives, paywalls, internet shutdowns etc. on archival practices. 3. The possibilities that are opened up by social media, open access, AR/ VR etc 4. Ownership and censorship concerns that arise with archival practice.
