Workshop: The politics of metadata in participatory approaches: Opportunities, practices, and conflicts @ University of Helsinki
Mar 7 all-day

Second call for proposals / Workshop at the conference Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries, 7 March 2018 at the University of Helsinki.

This workshop seeks to expand critical perspectives on metadata in relation to public cultural heritage image collections online.
In our image-saturated time, the definition of participatory online practices such as crowdsourcing enable cultural heritage institutions to accelerate the development of digi also be seen as platforms for audience engagement, creating a deep connection to cultural heritage through online collaboration. Furthermore, open data and enhanced standards enabling interoperability might support new forms of collaboration between institutions, researchers, and the general public.
However, these participatory open science practices create new challenges due to the character of the networked publics involved and the established structures between and within institutions, but also new opportunities and practices when it comes to understanding and defining our shared images. Therefore, critical perspectives on metadata in relation to photographic collections online are vital. This calls for an interdisciplinary approach in the intersection between computer science, image studies, and cultural studies.

For this workshop, therefore, we invite participants to look more closely at different types of participatory practices online in relation to the cultural heritage domain, and at different levels of interaction. Possible sites of analysis could be the interaction between participants, the participation in the work by different stakeholders, the potentially privileged levels of interaction with the metadata, or tensions in the agency of the participants in relation to the task.
This half-day workshop explores the topics in mini presentations and brainstorming sessions, and will result in a research agenda for addressing these questions.

The position-paper should be 2-4 pages and using the Springer LNCS templates.

Deadline is Wednesday, January 31, 2018.

Interpret Europe Conference 2018:Heritage and Identity
Mar 23 – Mar 26 all-day

Our Interpret Europe Conference 2018 will take place from 23 to 26 March in Kőszeg (Hungary). It will be organised by the Hungarian Association of Cultural Heritage Managers (KÖME) and opened by the EU Commissioner for Education and Culture, Tibor Navracsics.

Our aim is to link this conference to the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage and we chose ‘Heritage and Identity’ as our theme. The question of identity is key when it comes to one’s feelings towards Europe in all its diversity and one’s relationship with single nation states, regions and local communities.

One European region where identities most intermingle is the Austro-Hungarian border area. We will therefore run the conference as a border-crossing event, starting our pre-conference tour at Vienna from where we will travel into Hungary and ending our post-conference tour in Budapest.

Kőszeg itself was a free royal town in medieval times and its castle became famous for its insolent resistance in slowing down a huge Ottoman campaign against Vienna. This castle, with its large Knight’s Hall, will be our central venue. Besides this, we will seek to bring alive the surrounding historic centre where there is almost no traffic and all sites are in comfortable walking distance.

Study visits around Kőszeg will lead to places where we will taste local varieties of vine and the famous Hungarian cuisine, and they will also include sites within the border-crossing Fertő / Neusiedlersee Cultural Landscape (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Destinations will be as different as Esterháza, the ‘Hungarian Versailles’, which belonged to one of the most famous landowner families of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, or the Pan-European Picnic Park where the Iron Curtain was first lifted in 1989.

The European Green Belt along the former borderline between East and West is famous for its stunning natural heritage, especially the Fertő-Hanság and Neusiedler See-Seewinkel National Parks which are important resting places for migratory birds. We like to include a range of partners from the natural heritage field and also review how nature influences identity.

Make sure you save 23-26 March 2018 for our next conference. You can find the Call for Papers here.
