Memory, literacy and democracy: SB4-18/1-2011E-PDF

remarks made at the 150!Canada Conference : speeches and statements /

"Memory is largely becoming a social function that is conceived within the production and consumption of “information resources” mediated through multiple inputs - and potentially multiple “implants” - and does not concern necessarily the nature, source or status of the informant, the information resource or the container. By our gestures, our actions, our written texts and our spoken words, we are all producers of cultural artifacts and, as a result, of potential traces in the collective memory. This will not change. What is different is the manner in which we treat them."--p. 4.
