Material Memory

A Society, Culture and History podcast
 6 people rated this podcast
We live in the age of information, but how often do we think about what has been lost—or nearly lost? From memories left on discarded machines to the voices of ancestors trapped on obsolete media, we are losing parts of human history each day.

In theme-based seasons, Material Memory explores the effects of our changing environment—such as digital technologies, the climate crisis, or global human displacement—on our ability to access the record of our shared humanity, and the critical role that libraries, archives, museums, and other public institutions play in keeping cultural memory alive.

This is a thoughtful exploration of how the concerns of collecting institutions intersect with important social and cultural changes happening right now. I have learned a lot here that I couldn't learn elsewhere.
Informative and engaging.
These first two seasons of Material Memory have had a great line-up of guests! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed listening to them.
