The internet and digital technologies are changing how experts and audiences interact with museums and archives, and the ways in which cultural heritage institutions create knowledge from their collections. The seminar aims to deepen our understanding of how digitization and participatory models are transforming knowledge practices in museums and archives. The seminar is organized as part of an interdisciplinary research project that includes learning scientists, historians, museum curators, architects, and specialists in biodiversity informatics, memory archives, and science and technology policy evaluation.

International guest speakers include  Bernard Schiele, Faculty of Arts, University of Québec, Montreal; Dick Kasperowski, LETStudio, University of Gothenburg; Christine Hine, Department of Sociology, University of Surrey; and Alexandra Eveleigh, Wellcome Trust, London.

The seminar is organized as part of the Cultural Heritage Mediascapes: Innovation in Knowledge and Mediation Practices (2015-2019).
