Media and Memory

This chapter will take the map of the key approaches to memory explored in chapter one and extrapolate them along personal, collective, manufactured and ‘new memory’ lines so as to show how these theories have already been reinterpreted by media scholars. From a personal to a global perspective, theories of media and memory from Zelizer (1993, 1998) on journalism, Hirsch (2001) and Kuhn (2002) on photography, Grainge (2002) on film, Kitch (2005) on magazines, Sturken (2007) on television/film/photography, Hoskins (2004) on satellite broadcasting, Rosenzweig and Cohen (2005) on digital history and van Dijk (2007) on digital media have all grappled with synthesizing memory within the context of particular media forms. This chapter affords the reader a clearer insight into how theorists of media and memory have carved up the theoretical terrain.
