Autobiographical Memory and Contemporary Fiction
Alice Hall of the University of York explores the effect of blogs, YouTube and phone apps on the way we share our lives.
Blogs, YouTube, Facebook and phone apps have changed the way we share our lives, leading to an explosion in the telling of life stories. Alice Hall, from the University of York, explores our changing perceptions of what memory and memoir mean and looks at the way the language of modern fiction has tried to reflect this shift.
