Summer School: Things That Matter. Material and Culture in/for the Digital Age

“Things that Matter” addresses the tension between the materiality of sources and their digitization. The recent advances of digital technology have created new modes of reproduction and forms of consumption that have substantially reshaped the concepts of ‘object’ and of ‘collection’ at the heart of cultural institutions such as libraries and museums.

 

Monday 15 June, 9am to Friday 19 June 2020, 5pm, Durham University.

 

The deadline for application for the summer school is 31 March 2020.
