Digital Heritage Workshops

The Digital Heritage Workshops have now finished – but all session recordings are available to view on YouTube. Please click here to view the full playlist.


Workshops are taking place on Friday 19, Friday 26 and Wednesday 31 March.

Register here:

With six sessions across three days, these Workshops will explore Digital Heritage in the context of global, and local, inequalities and the (other) legacies of imperial pasts. We will be exploring the relationship between dominant and marginal curations, and how the opportunities offered by digital environments have the potential to both challenge and reinforce those hierarchies, globally, nationally, and locally.
