Jamie Schleser

PhD Fellow
American University

Currently a Ph.D. Fellow in the School of Communication at American University in Washington, D.C. My ongoing research focuses on assessing the impact of the Internet, social media, and mobile technologies on cultural memory, historical narrative, and individual identity. I am particularly interested in the expansion of access and the participatory culture facilitated by the digitization of physical archives and the aggregation of born-digital cultural production, whether formally or informally, into omnipresent online archives and the growth of the open data movement in the realm of cultural heritage.
