“Weaving together diverse disciplinary perspectives, this edited volume offers an insightful exploration of the relationship between activism and digital memory. It brings together scholars from memory studies, digital media research and social movement studies to investigate practices of digital curation, circulation and claiming of memories by social and political movements. The picture that emerges is nuanced and compelling. It is also firmly grounded in empirical case studies from all over the world, from the virtual Escrache in Argentina to American transgender communities to the Navalny campaign in Russia. This is an indispensable volume for scholars interested in digital memory and social movements.” (Dr Anastasia Kavada, Reader in Media and Politics, School of Media and Communication, University of Westminster, UK)

“While social movements are certainly innovative, they are also deeply rooted in traditions of contention that are embedded in the memories of past struggles. Mnemonic practices involve complex mechanisms that work offline, but also online. Covering a broad range of cases in various parts of the world and bridging studies on memory and digital media, this very interesting collection helps us understand the forms and meaning of protest.” (Donatella della Porta, Professor of Political Science, Scuola Normale Superiore Florence, Italy)

“This excellent collection offers cutting-edge insights within a unified perspective. It will become required reading for everyone interested in memory and activism in the digital age.” (Ann Rigney, Professor of Comparative Literature, Utrecht University, The Netherlands)

"Social Movements, Cultural Memory and Digital Media provides an important foundation for future interdisciplinary research of memory and media in movement. It will be of great value to experienced and junior scholars. Despite its sometimes heavy use of jargon, it may even inform students and activists." (Yifat Gutman, Mobilization, December, 2020)
