  • Down memory lane: Reflections and recollections on the dawn of participatory media in Nigeria

    Down memory lane: Reflections and recollections on the dawn of participatory media in Nigeria


     

    Community radios were often established as a response to different kinds of struggle about socio-economic or cultural issues. In Nigeria, the establishment of community broadcasting is in direct response to the pressure from civil society on the Federal Government for the democratization of the airwaves in order to facilitate the emerging Nigerian democracy, create a more pluralistic media system and for rural development.

  • Select annotated bibliography: Media and memory

    Select annotated bibliography: Media and memory

    This edition of Memory Studies centres on the theme of digital media and its role in storing cultural memory. It emphasizes how digital media in a post-scarcity culture of data acquisition and hyperconnectivity allows for an annexing of the past. Further, the articles explore how media enable certain commemorative practices that contribute to the continual creation of cultural memory.

  • Preserving India’s palm leaf manuscripts for the future

    Preserving India’s palm leaf manuscripts for the future
    India’s rich repository of knowledge has been passed down for generations through oral and written traditions through a variety of writing materials such as stones, copperplates, birch bark, palm leaves, parchments and paper. Palm leaf manuscripts form an invaluable part of India’s documented heritage. Written in different Indian languages, these manuscripts are scattered all over the country in monasteries, temples, libraries, museums, with individuals and in several private collections.

  • The Caribbean and the right to memory

    The Caribbean and the right to memory
    As we are discovering every day, with an increasingly elderly population succumbing to Alzheimer’s, when we lose memory we lose what makes us who we are. How many wives or husbands exclaim when their dementia suffering partner loses his or her memory, “This is not the man (or woman) I married, it is a stranger.”

  • Digital nostalgia

    Digital nostalgia
    Some miss and regret past times or places, others are nostalgic for a past that has never been. But nostalgia is not only recalling what is gone or what will never be (again) exactly as it was. It is also a mnemonic source of creativity, helping us to cope with painful memories, a difficult present or an unknown future. Mass media and new technologies are decisive tools and agents in this context. Their interplay with nostalgic feelings navigates between political abuse, commercial exploitation, appeasing homesickness, and artistic freedom.

  • La responsabilidad de hacer memoria

    La responsabilidad de hacer memoria
    Hace 20 años que ejerzo el periodismo. Inicié muy joven, en medio de la difícil situación que afrontaba mi país. Era un momento determinante porque el narcotráfico había permeado todas las esferas de la sociedad, incluso el mismo periodismo. Desde que tengo memoria me gustó escribir; escribía ensayos y poesías. En la secundaria hacía crónicas sobre lo que pasaba en el país y veía a través de la pantalla del televisor.

  • Historical amnesia and the right to communicate in Indonesia

    Historical amnesia and the right to communicate in Indonesia
    The relationship between media and historical perception is a deeply entwined one – as a platform for the dissemination of communication, media possess the power to both strengthen the links and shape the understandings that communities have to their respective pasts. The concept of collective memory fundamentally ties into how these pasts are continually constructed, thus facilitating discussions on the intersections between history, culture, and identity.
