I was a guest speaker on a panel for a course in ‘Culture and Heritage Informatics’ at Kingston University, London, April 28, 2008. I have summarised some of the discussion on the Museum of London blog and on my personal blog.
Now I look back on it, this is probably where I started to develop ideas about the role of the ‘cultural heritage technologist’.
UK MultiMimsy Users Group. Museum in Docklands, London, April 18, 2008.
I taught one class on ‘Computer assisted interpretation; integration of finds and site sequence’ in the Birkbeck MA Archaeology Module “Archaeological Post-Excavation and Publication”, based on material originally written by Rich May.
‘Introduction to Digital Humanities’ was a new postgraduate course run by Dr Suzanne Paylor at Birkbeck College that examined the impact of technology on humanities research practice. It combined aspects of media studies, humanities computing and literary studies to foster an appreciation of the core methods and practical, political/philosophical and pedagogical issues in digital humanities.
