Title

Theorizing Digital Cultural Heritage: A Critical Discourse.

Subject

Digital Humanities

Description

This anthology offers a comprehensive overview of theoretical approaches to cultural heritage institutions and digital media. Featuring authors from a broad variety of disciplinary fields, it aims at an international, cross-disciplinary audience of scholars, professionals, and students. Rather than focus on methodology or technical implementation, the collection provides critical analyses of arguments and theories about the intersections of material and digital objects. Arguing that questions and doubts regarding technology and cultural heritage are part of a long-standing, ongoing discourse, the authors ask “what new understandings can be brought to bear on the relationship between digital and physical collections, artworks, and on the digital object.” Each article illuminates different aspects of the theme; drawing on examples in practice, such as photography and art, the authors examine how digitization bears upon abstract concepts of materiality, authenticity, authority, and representation.
