Topographies of Memory: Exchanging Knowledge and Best Practices

International Seminar

In specific historical contexts,  memories that are  embedded in and activated by certain sites undergo social amnesia and dereliction; certain other sites may be subjected to deliberate destruction. Recent approaches to cultural heritage preservation and memory studies have started incorporating  digital technologies into their strategic and methodological repertoire in order to retain the endangered memory of the neglected or non–existent sites.

Memorialization projects that use and implement a variety of technological tools are thus increasing the efficacy of efforts against social amnesia and the politics of oblivion: Online maps, websites, applications for smartphones and guided tours incorporating sites of memory are effective methods to reactivate  memory of places. This panel  will address some of the interactive ways in which the memory of places is being revived in current practices.
