Work package 3 : Digital heritage. the future role of heritage and archive collections in a digital world

This WP aims to explore the impact of digital archives and digital cultural heritage impact on those that engage with it particularly in terms of their emotional response and the expression of individual and collective identities. This theme will train entrepreneurial researchers to adopt and develop new methodologies for identifying individual and collective impacts of engagement with digital archives, including those independent digital archiving projects which may offer the possibility of subverting canonical cultural heritage to showcase under-voiced and counter-hegemonic narratives. Of particular interest in the context of this overall European collaborative project, this WP will equip these new critical cultural heritage researchers with the multidisciplinary tools to measure the impact of such engagements transnationally with diasporic communities or with specifically international, pan-European projects.

This theme will complete research in the following areas:

1/Examining engagement with digital archives and cultural heritage amongst diverse communities in different European locations and the discussions around identities that take place around these engagements.

2/Exploring the impact of digital archive exhibitions. The digitisation and dissemination of archival material has often unintended implications which need to be analysed and evaluated, the contexts understood and consequences accounted for.

3/Utilising the technique of emotional cartography to think about how emotional responses to cultural heritage might be captured, represented and analysed. In doing so we will train the next generation of researchers in a range of traditional and innovative quantitative and qualitative methodologies needed for creating digital archive and cultural heritage resources and then evaluating their use and impact including digital ethnography and digital anthropology
