Digitally Mediated Memory and the Spanish Civil War
Spence provides a much-needed overview of the ways in which digital mediation influences both the emerging field of Memory Studies, and its object of study, memory formation. Using the Spanish Civil War as a case study, and drawing on disparate areas of digital theory and practice, the author explores how the study of contested memory is transformed in new media landscapes. Spence contrasts different digitally informed methodological approaches, and explores challenges in integrating these into a consolidated research toolkit connecting the work of archivists, historians, media theorists and researchers from Memory Studies and the Digital Humanities.
