"Opening up memory making. Inquiries into memory modalities in digital media ecologies"

Convenors: Gertraud Koch (Institute for Anthropological Studies in Culture and History, University of Hamburg) Maria Economou (Information Studies & The Hunterian Museum, University of Glasgow) Isto Huvila (Department of ALM, Uppsala University) Samantha Lutz (Institute for Anthropological Studies in Culture and History, University of Hamburg)

Long abstract: Digital media ecologies open-up publics for articulations of people and groups beyond the established institutions. They promise to break with traditional knowledge hierarchies by providing new modes of participation and publicness. However, participatory memory making for people and groups in vulnerable social situations did not emerge by itself through the re-mediation of memories, which emerges from digitalization with its particular capacity for representing, sharing and sustaining knowledge (including emotional, practical and tacit knowing). Being aware of the fact that culture may cultivate integrative or disruptive forces, establishing inclusive politics of heritage for envisioning possible futures has become a key issue in memory making. Building on the rich knowledge on participation in memory making, we thus want to move on and explore the wide array of modalities, in which mediated memories contribute to opening-up established knowledge orders in public memory. This panel invites contributions on how memory modalities open-up established knowledge orders and foster social inclusive, future envisioning memory making. We seek to discover and inquire which organisational settings, discourses, business models and finances, cultural economies, legal frameworks or potential other modalities facilitate accessibility, agency and motivation of people and groups to partake in public memory making. Being part of the public memory is important for envisioning positive possible futures acknowledging people's and groups' history, identity, belonging, and membership, in questions of eligibility for public support or redemption, for partaking in economic outcomes or questions of ownership of cultural heritage resources.

We are looking forward to your contributions!

Best wishes on behalf of the convenors, Gertraud Koch, Maria Economou, Isto Huvila, Samantha Lutz
