Curating Digital Images:
Ethnographic Perspectives on the Affordances of Digital Images in Heritage and Museum Contexts (2019–2023)
The DFG-funded research project “Curating Digital Images: Ethnographic Perspectives on the Affordances of Digital Images in Heritage and Museum Contexts” is located within the DFG priority programme “Das digitale Bild” / “The Digital Image” and brings ethnographic perspectives to bear on practices of digital curation in museums and heritage. The project is based at the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage (CARMAH) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Ludwig Uhland Institute for Historical and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Tübingen. With its main applicants being Christoph Bareither and Sharon Macdonald, it couples the research expertise of museum and heritage studies with perspectives and approaches of media and digital anthropology, as well as information science, with Elke Greifeneder as project co-applicant.
