Abstract

United by a common tendency to raise questions about the meaning, recollection, and locus of "home" in a digital age, the five hypermedia Web sites on this virtual tour open up arenas for staging autobiographical scenes differently. Broadening the scope of The Home Project that the trAce Online Writing Centre maintains, and drawing on theories of spatiality and cyberculture, the survey of Family Portrait, Grandfather Gets a House, The Family Album Portrait, Home Maker, and Heard It in the Playground shows how these networked experiments with collaborative storytelling and a composite approach transform personal home pages into new spaces for cultural intervention that, while merging "private" and "public" spheres, provide forums in which culturally diverse casts of characters showcase theatres of recollection for heterogeneous audiences around the world.
