Reviews

'...an excellent overview of current discourse surrounding how we store, hold and deal with memories as a concept or product, when they are primarily created and/or experienced in digital form. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone entering or currently working within the areas of digital death or digital identity and heritage. The book creates an intriguing line of enquiry and draws the reader into a range of arguments, bipolarities, expanded examples, studies and sites, which are brought together in a coherent manner under the general theme of how new memory structures are augmenting human practices, cultures and even, to an extent, the idea of the human itself in a post-digital age. This book provides a contemporary analysis of the field of memory studies, which draws from the past and looks to the future.' - Stacey Pitsillides, Goldsmiths, University of London, International Journal of Performance, Arts and Digital Media
