Is This Your Life?
  • Edinburgh Fringe

We all leave a trace. (Some have a seemingly complete documentary of their lives on Facebook.) Archivist Rachel Hosker asks: If you were to leave an archive of your life, what would be in it? Would (and could) it reflect you, your life, thoughts, personality, work, interests, and relationships? What would be destroyed and forgotten? Would others put the same things in an archive about you? Is it possible to leave behind an authentic memory of yourself? Would you be okay with the memory left behind, and what researchers do with it?
