“Participatory memory describes the ways in which people interact with a space in order to remember, commemorate, or pay homage to an event, person, or idea,” undergraduate researcher Christine Scales explains.

They are working to find ways to document these spaces digitally, and are even working on a prototype for an app that would allow for this type of information to be shared with visitors to the site of the tragic 1927 school bombing in Bath, MI.
