Short description

In recent decades, the archive has emerged as one of the key concepts and objects of critical heritage study in the 21st century. In tandem with this development has emerged a rapidly growing ecosystem of digital and digitized cultural heritage resources forging new challenges and opportunities in an increasingly globalised world. This cluster examines how engagement with archives and cultural heritage material, especially in digital form, impacts on knowledge production and the formation and articulation of individual and collective identity, memory, cultural values and power relations.
