Feeling through the screen: memory sites, affective entanglements, and digital materialities

Abstract : This paper argues for an approach to memory sites that attends to the potential for particular affective intensities to be brought into being by and through digital screens. In doing so, we draw together recent work on heritage sites and affect with the notion of 'digital materialities', which focuses on the role of digital technologies as part of our ongoing and emergent everyday lives. We explore the utility of such a framework through a 'sensory digital ethnography' in a national memory site in France, the Camp des Milles, a state memorial and museum where individual memory intersects with local history in an atmospheric built environment. As we will show, it is characterised by particular sensory affordances and personal and historical narratives presented in part through digital screens-which together prompt complex and contingent ways of imagining and feeling the past for visitors. http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/culturalgeog cultural geographies
