This summer WGBH/FRONTLINE Records Manager John Campopiano launched The New England Media & Memory Coalition (NEMMC) to great success. Geared towards anyone interested in archives, community media, or media in general, NEMMC is a regional organization dedicated to fostering discussion and promoting a better understanding of how media and digital and analog technologies intersect with and relate to memory, identity, nostalgia, and senses of place. It supports and is represented by myriad professions including but not limited to archives, A/V and moving-image conservation, cultural informatics, art, and information science.
Find out more by reading NEMMC's inaugural quarterly newsletter which offers insight into some of the content (interviews, longer form articles, videos, and more) featured on the website. Going further, the newsletter also adds interesting tidbits related both to NEMMC activities and the themes and ideas it explores. If you are interested in receiving future newsletters, contact John Campopiano directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.Stay tuned for new content over the coming months including a NEMMC meet-up in the Boston area in early 2016.
