Guest Lecture 26/02/15 – Dr Stuart Jeffrey – New Approaches to Digital Heritage : Co-production, authenticity and art


This talk will look at evolving approaches to engagement in the heritage sector looking specifically at digital co-production and the value of creative response. The talk will explore the context in which these approaches are emerging from political notions of democratisation and re-thinking the role of the expert, to the concepts of authenticity and aura in the digital realm. Two recent case studies will be discussed as examples, the AHRC funded ACCORD project and the Creative Scotland funded George Square site specific music project.
