Dear Diary

A celebration of Diaries and their Digital Descendants.

Dear Diary highlights how diaries stage important issues for the individual and society, including those of identity, intimacy, privacy, secrecy, therapy, self-expression, self-improvement, memory and witnessing.

Celebrating a wide range 
of diaries past and present, 
Dear Diary shows the diary 
form is alive and well in the digital age. The exhibition presents an intriguing and diverse cast of living diarists on paper and in digital media whose voices prove profound, prosaic and surprising.

Diaries give unique accounts of individual lives, offer interpretations of the world 
and add new and thought-provoking dimensions to
social history.

The exhibition is a collaboration between King’s College London’s Centre for Life-Writing Research and The Great Diary Project, presented by Cultural Programming at King’s. It also draws on the expertise of the European Research Council-funded Ego Media research group at King’s.
