From 29 September to 1 October 2019, the Digitising Heritage workshop will be held at the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg. Organised by Carsten Wergin (Heidelberg) and Stefanie Affeldt (Heidelberg), this international workshop brings together interdisciplinary studies concerned with the manifestation and distribution of heritage in digital form. The distribution of heritage (values) is more variegated than ever. Presenters will unravel the contestations surrounding the production of heritage as a concept and practice, with particular emphasis on questions of representation in museums, academic institutions, politics and history. How are we to make effective use of digital technologies to engage with heritage in a sustainable way? How do critical heritage concepts find expression as ‘environment’, ‘place-making’, ‘remembrance’, ‘law’ and ‘culture’ in the digital age?
