Day 4: Digital lifestyles

Thursday 11 August, with Dr Rebecca Huntley.


We create digital content in every aspect of our lives. Where once our precious documents were letters, diaries and photo albums, today they may be emails, blogs and Instagram accounts. How would we feel if we lost those electronic records, and what impact would that have on our personal and collective history?

Watch Dr Rebecca Huntley talk about the need to become aware of the digital content we create every day, and why we need to get serious about preserving our own digital lives.
