3rd Prato International Community Informatics Conference, 9- 11 October 2006

Constructing and sharing memory: Community informatics, identity and empowerment

Conference Purpose

The characteristics of particular technologies have a role in shaping the ways in which memories are reproduced (consider the growth of blogs and wikis as 'instant history'). How do we constitute memory? What is its relationship to formal and informal stories that reside in communities? Is it linked to institutions and structures, or is community informatics supporting a separate public sphere (Habermas)? What is the place and role of community informatics in the development of new means to capture private and public memory?
