Media and Memory

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter will build upon the media and memory discourses explicated in chapters one and two by offering a historical, social, institutional and technological context for the developing use of media forms and practices for making memories. This production by broadcasters, institutions and private citizens will be explored through a range of media from photography, radio, television, film, to digital media. The chapter will situate the synthesis of media and memory studies within the context of the cultural and political economies that compel individuals, communities and societies to remember in specific ways and for specific reasons. Thus, it will explore the dimensions of commercialism, consumerism, creative, heritage and culture industry practices, and digitization to more fully understand the issues at stake when media and memory are pragmatically integrated.
