Digital Icons: Studies in Russian, Eurasian and Central European New Media
Issue 4: War, Conflict and Commemoration in the Age of Digital Reproduction
guest-edited by Adi Kuntsman (University of Manchester).

This issue of Digital Icons explores the ways in which wars and 
conflicts are mediated, commemorated, reported and discussed on the 
Internet as well as in other forms of new media, including mobile 
phones, digital broadcasting and computer games. The issue examines the 
role of new media in understanding, representing, negotiating and 
remembering (or forgetting) war and terror; the status of testimony, 
evidence and reportage in the age of digital reproduction; practices of 
memory in relation to new information and communication technologies; 
and structures of feeling that operate in on-line reports and debates 
around military operations and human suffering.
