The development of participatory culture on the internet over the last 15 years haschallenged conceptualizations of many social phenomena, including society’s workwith the past. Acknowledging efforts by José van Dijck (2007), Andrew Hoskins(2009, 2018), and others to accommodate the conceptual architecture of shared rememberingto the Web 2.0 reality, the field of memory studies still remains undertheorized.Media Archaeologies, Micro-Archives and Storytelling: Re-Presencing thePast by Martin Pogačar intends to fill the conceptual void by exploring grassrootsmemory practices on the internet. Along with exploring digital memory, the bookfocuses on how online remembrance activities redefine or, in Pogačar’s words, represencethe Yugoslav past.
