Below are a selection of writings produced during my time completing a Masters of Digital Humanities. My research looked at the social impact of technology focusing on the way national narratives are constructed in a digital era as well as looking at how contemporary Indigenous artists and activists use cyberspace as a place to counter those narratives. Book ending Expo ’67 with Canada 150, I conducted research on screen technology as a precusor to digital design and interfaces. Also, because of a curiousity of monuments as physical manifestations of national narratives, heritage conservation and memory studies provided a foundation upon which to consider how we archive digital heritage.
