I knew from the moment I started learning about collective memory studies that I wanted to do this project. Through my research, I explored the collective memory of a deceased parent that a child develops through the family. I originally wanted to do a lot more with the paper, but ended up focusing primarily on memory sharing through story telling and picture sharing. The paper has a lot of personal meaning for me and it was a great way for me to reconnect with family and my roots while exploring an aspect of collective memory that I found exciting and one that has not been researched significantly.
