  • 2. (The biggest digital heritage environment of them all…)
  • 3.  
  • 4. NO
  • 5.  
  • 6. NO
  • 7.  
  • 8. Yes, but what's the story ?
  • 9. Driving curiosity: making connections
    • "Curious person" ideal subject of digital heritage
    • "It will invest the coming time in consciousness-raising campaigns that will fascinate and draw in to the history of the Netherlands all within the current state borders, all those who feel Dutch beyond them, and all its fans." The National Historical Museum Stimulates Imagination 2008
  • 10. Driving curiosity: making connections
    • "Curious person" ideal subject of digital heritage
    • Drivers:
      • Exploration, assembling knowledge and recognizing patterns
      • Experience: pleasures of text, the past, etc.
      • 'Expert’ knowledge: uncovering new fields and ways of making connections
  • 11. Driving curiosity: making connections
    • "Curious person" ideal subject of digital heritage
    • Drivers:
      • Exploration, assembling knowledge and recognizing patterns (mystery)
      • Experience: pleasures of text, the past, etc.
      • 'Expert’ knowledge: uncovering new fields and ways of making connections
  • 12. “ Top down” agendas : creating access to digital cultural heritage
    • Projects such as:
      • Gallica and other national collections
      • Europeana
      • MICHAEL (Multilingual Inventory of Cultural Heritage in Europe)
      • European Primary History Sources (EUI)
      • (etc...)
    • Aimed (mostly) toward exploration
  • 13. local agendas: demonstrating relevance
    • Institutions need to justify and redefine themselves as a (used) service: traffic as measure
    • Revenue generation (image licenses, etc.)
    • Not collections, but experiences (key pieces, core competences) often seen as key to new publics
    • 'Europe' is not always a useful frame of reference
    • Collaboration can be rewarding – but risks draining limited resources
  • 14. Our goal: stimulating use of digital cultural heritage
    • utilize available online resources (and provide stimulus for more)
    • provide rich narrative environments for exploration and engagement
    • generate interpretive dialogue with experts
    • create links to and between CH collections (increase traffic)
  • 15. The Project: A transnational history of Europe with technology as central focus www.tensionsofeurope.eu 6 Volumes Europe in the Global World From Nature to Networks: the Infrastructural Transformation of Europe European Technological Dramas: Histories of Consumption and Use Eventing Europe: Electronic Information and Communication Spaces in Europe Knowledge Societies, Expert Networks and Innovation Cultures in Europe Governing Europe: Technology, Experts and Networks
  • 16. THE VIRTUAL EXHIBIT: A collaboration between current research and a range of major CH institutions 6 Exhibits Collaboration between: A narrow group of authors and a broader research network Science and technology museums Local and national general collections Other specialized collections National and European aggregation projects
  • 17. Virtual Exhibit: the concept
    • 'Static' component : web-based object-driven exhibit compiled by scholars using CH content
    • Dynamic component : gather selected related content directly from museum collections
    • Options for futher user interactivity : multiple views; save trajectories or light table images; tag and share; chat/discuss
  • 18.  
  • 19. Making Europe: principles
    • European stories are those that question borders, show movements, explore tensions;
    • Objects are shown as having multiple meanings and contexts within and beyond the exhibit
    • "Dynamic" objects are digitized and published once on their home site, leading users back into new contexts and beyond
    • Expert-led and user-led stories are brought into dialogue with each other
