In an age ofglobal communication, the making of histories and memories is closely connected to diverseand movingmedia landscapes.Thekaleidoscope of differentmedia, memoriesand historiesinfluences the remembering, forgetting and archiving of events and processes,andisthereforeconstantly shaping and reshapingindividual and collective identities. This PGR conference willaddress the underlying power structures of the relationshipbetween the three ever-evolving fieldsby foregrounding interdisciplinary research that crosses the boundariesseparatingthem.Newandmorenuanced ways of understanding the past as well as the present can be discovered byincludingmedia technologies thatare developingthrough time as well as different understandings of both memory and history,so thatmultiple realitiescan be explored. In this sense, this conference is interested in the moving character ofmedia, memories and histories, which donot only travel with the subjects that inhabit them,butare furtherconstantly transmitted throughdiverse forms of communicationbetween humans, objects and technologies.
