Biography

Paige Gibson is a doctoral candidate in the Klein College of Media and Communication working at the intersection of social memory, technology, identity, and space/place. A recipient of the Digital Scholars Award in 2016-17, Paige worked with the Digital Scholarship Center to use digital humanities methods to examine the spatial relationships among memory sites in Berlin. The project in turn prompted the questions: How does a city remember itself? And with what politics? Funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Paige conducted ten months of fieldwork in Berlin, Munich, and Dresden to carry out a multi-sited analysis of German memory cultures. Uniting memory studies and science, technology and society studies, her dissertation examines place-based memory technologies used by institutional and vernacular actors to construct urban memoryscapes.
