Publication: Digital Heritage, Hamburger Journal für Kulturanthropologie 2017 (7)

publication of the open access Hamburger Journal für Kulturanthropologie 2017 (7) special issue on {D1G1TAL HER1TAGE} edited by Samantha Lutz.

Issue description:

The digitization of text, images, and other cultural materials has become a common practice in European galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAMs); in consequence cultural heritage is labelled and perceived as "digital heritage". The contributions critically research and reflect the metacultural production and emerging changes of professional heritage work.

The articles in this volume make a case for reconsidering the more familiar categories of cultural heritage, be it custodial institutions and their memory modalities, cultural memory, participatory culture, rationales like openness and accessibility, or the rethinking of the operationalization of rights or compliance, the experience and representation of cultural heritage, or finally the notion of knowledge itself. Taken together, the authors chart various new directions in critical heritage scholarship and related fields of practice, while acknowledging and building upon established fundamentals including perspectives from cultural anthropology, museum studies, art history, information science, - to name only a few - and other disciplines of critical heritage studies as well as from the perspective of practitioners such as heritage professionals along with social and cultural entrepreneurs.

Keywords: digital heritage; digitized heritage; born-digital resources; digital humanities; critical heritage studies; metacultural production
