Digital Memoirs is the journal’s creative and analytical project. Its main objective is to facilitate a reflective discussion of the experience of digital media in Russia, Eurasia and Central Europe. Digital Icons aims to construct a collaborative historical narrative that would define use of digital media, including digital gadgets, digital forms of communication and digital practices, in a post-communist, post-totalitarian space. Digital Icons hopes that such a narrative would enhance our understanding of the role of new media in society, contribute to the theory of digital media and avoid the presentism of new media studies by adopting a critical historical perspective. The project straddles practices—creative work and academic reflection; and research disciplines—web anthropology, media studies, communication studies, (literary/art) history, folklore, fandom studies, etc. Digital Memoirs presents diverse voices of cultural authority: the journal invites submissions of artists, researchers, media practitioners, journalists and people from other professions and walks of life.
