Call for Papers, Videos, and e-Exhibitions: Digital Technologies and ICH

Memoriamedia Review

Memoriamedia project has a peer-reviewed e-journal dedicated to promoting, communicating, and documenting projects, studies, and archives of intangible cultural heritage. For this issue, authors are invited to submit unpublished papers, videos, or e-exhibitions about digital technology and ICH.

Since 2008, Memória Imaterial CRL has been collecting and promoting traditional, oral, and popular culture through its Memoriamedia Project.
