A motley of practical and scholarly news updates related to media and memory:

* The Web Wars team is busy preparing its project conference Old Conflicts, New Media: Commemorating the Socialist Experience Online, to take place at Hotel Solstrand later this month. For an updated conference schedule and to see the abstracts, have a look at our conference page.

* The University of Cambridge announces a postdoctoral research-associate vacancy for an exciting media-cum-memory related topic: "Information Technologies in Russia 1450-1850." For details, surf to the job profile site.

* In the past weeks, we have been Tweeting about some exciting new-media/post-socialist space links, including Sean Rintel's excellent and entertaining analysis of digital meming (think templatability, snowclones, loot-alikes), George Williams' reflections on "Starting Points in the Digital Humanities," and a short but informative presentation on new media in Ukraine by Paolo Costa. For these and more relevant media/memory links, follow us on Twitter.
