The April 16 Archive: A Historiography in the Age of the New Media

Gooyong Kim

Abstract

This paper examines how historiography has been changed in the age of the new media. The technological advancement of mass media has
influenced the way how ordinary people participate in historiography. Thanks to the new media technologies, the democratization of
historiography has ever been possible as with popular practices of cultural production. The gunshot rampage in Virginia polytechnic
Institute on April 16, 2007 was an important event for examining the potential of popular historiography through individuals' participation in media production. This paper sheds critical light on the April 16
Archive that is created for preserving the past as "digital memory banks" for an emerging potential of popular historiography. In
conclusion, this paper recommends critical pedagogic interventions to promote individuals' counter-hegemonic deployment of the new media technologies in the cultural politics of historiography.
