Trauma, memoria, y participación en la edad digital: Espacios de memoria en Santiago de Chile

by Allen de Oliveira, Tessa

Abstract

In this project, I investigate how post-dictatorship physical spaces of memory in Chile move into the digital space in order to continue to talk about human rights and expandthe archiving process. I focus on the intersection between personal and institutional memory practices, examining the digital activity of Chile's two most notable spaces of memory, Londres 38 and Villa Grimaldi, and exploring how they include individual users in their digital memory practices. I analyze how they go beyond the ethics and aesthetics found in the physical memory space, which grants them the authority and ability to digitally articulate a traumatic past, examining their official web pages--their interfaces, audiovisuals, and the levels of access to informational archives that they grant to digital users. In short, I investigate how memory is changing in the digital age, how digital platforms provide unprecedented opportunities for collective, participatory memory practices, how digital memory can function pedagogically, emotionally, and revolutionarily.
