Bring Out Your Dead: How emerging technology can (or can’t) transform memorials and biography

Festschriften, memorials, biographical projects — all precede the web, all continue in blended form.  How can we use emerging tech to memorialize, investigate, remember the subjects of our research and our collections?  Can we partner across institutions and geographical boundaries to create fuller, broader, more complicated memorials?  What can we learn from family history research?  Is anyone even interested in biography any longer?

Come share your research or ideas on comparative biography, personal archives, capturing legacies.
