CFP: “Researching Digital Cultural Heritage” Conference, Manchester UK

Researching Digital Cultural Heritage” is a 2-day international conference in Manchester (30/11 – 1/12 2017), jointly organised by the University of Manchester and Newcastle University. The conference proposes a critical
examination of established and emerging theoretical, methodological and analytical frameworks in researching cultural heritage spaces, objects, audiences and practices in the digital realm. This includes both the impact
that digital media have in developing new research methodologies and frameworks of analysis of cultural heritage; and the practice of researching digitally mediated or digitally constituted heritage objects, spaces and interactions and the environments in which this research takes place.

We invite proposals for 20min presentations that focus and critically reflect on theoretical, methodological, ethical, or analytical approaches in researching cultural heritage in the digital realm. Indicative themes include:

– Current and emerging research design, methodologies, methods and tools in researching cultural heritage in the digital realm (e.g. digital ethnography, social network analysis, visual analysis, sentiment analysis, text mining, big data, data visualisation, digital archives, web and social media analytics)
– Digitally enabled collaborative, participatory and reflexive approaches in cultural heritage design, research and practice
– Ethical considerations and processes in researching digital cultural heritage
– Researching digital materiality in cultural heritage
– Researching social media and digital games as cultural heritage
– Researching audiences in digital cultural heritage environments
– Researching organisational strategies, structures, processes and workforce in digital cultural heritage
– Digital/online cultural heritage spaces as research environments
