Memory Full? Digital keepsake box

This webpage is populated with digital items (pictures, audio, photographs, posters) that respond to the theme of the DHS 2021 Annual Conference Memory Full? We had first named it a "pop-up archive" but then came to call it a "digital keepsake box". It is a transitional, emergent, space between an undisciplined collection of items loosely grouped together and something that might, or might not, become part of an actual archive in the future.
