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.
