Through the power of social media, Syrians who have been tragically displaced from their homes come together online to share their experiences and nostalgic memories of the past. This project works to connect these materials into a unified communal archive.
|The displacement crisis in Syria has devastated millions of civilians beyond measure. Throughout this struggle, Syrians, particularly Aleppians, have recorded their shared experiences and memory of cultural heritage through social media. This project, facilitated by Ronin Institute for Independent Scholarship, will survey social media applications, including Facebook, Instagram, and Tripadvisor, to identify virtual cultural heritage collections - commemorative community archives - recorded by those who have been forcibly displaced from their homes.|
