Salon: Digital technologies for culture and heritage

18 October @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm, London

Digital technologies and systems do not just impact industry. They are changing how we engage with and consume culture.
The impacts they have on how we consume media, entertainment and even our social lives are well reported. But one area where digital technologies may have a significant impact is that of how we engage with past culture – with heritage artefacts and with data about our past.

Digital technologies can not only provide new ways to interact with this heritage but provide new and novel insights into past events. This salon will consider recent research on how digital technologies are changing how we study, represent and then support access to culture and heritage.

Join us to hear from Professor Luigina Ciolfi, Professor of Human-Centred Computing at Sheffield Hallam University and Dr Zoe Alker, Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology Lecturer at University of Liverpool as they present results and examples from recent major research projects in this area, funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council and the European Union.

The salon will be followed by networking drinks. Places are limited so please register now to avoid disappointment.
