Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Photographic Digital Heritage: Institutions, Communities and The Political intends to explore how uses of digital technology, and digitisation in particular, have transformed the ways in which historical photographs of value to perceived inherited cultural legacies are collected, deployed and identified as such. It will specifically investigate what has led formal heritage and memory institutions to drive this process, how heritage communities might have navigated their aspirations around it, and how political interest groups have taken advantage of it to promote their causes.
Bringing together international photography and heritage scholars, policymakers, and community organisers, the conference is geared towards unravelling how “the political” has conditioned digitization practices, while equally looking into the ways in which photographic digital heritage has facilitated innovative hegemonic and anti-hegemonic aspirations in national and inter-national social settings.
Registration is free but required to allow us to share the link for the livestream in due course.
