The Digitalisation of Memory

Technology – Possibilities – Boundaries

Technology and digitalisation are rapidly speeding in a more and more digitalized society. In the field of heritage and memory new technology, digital applications and tools offers new ways of engaging and exploring our history, memorials and cultural institutions. Join us in this online seminar to explore and discuss where we stand and where we’re going in the evolving field of the digitalisation of memory.

Day 1:
The digital museum, memorial and authentic site
February 3rd, 09.00 – 12.00

Day 2:
The ethical boundary of technology at museums, memorials and authentic sites
February 4th, 09.00 – 12.00

The Falstad Centre and POLIN Museum of the History of the Polish Jews are inviting you to The Digitalisation of Memory. The seminar seeks to explore the possibilities in the field of new technologies, and the ethical quandaries it arises. In a vast field of modern digitalisation there are bound to be discussions and disagreements about the boundaries of the digitalisation. Is there an ethical boundary for the digitalisation of memory?  Who and what seems to be determining the ethical line?

During the seminar we will explore the topic through lectures, presentations and discussion led by a vide range of experts in the field. By participating you’ll be introduced to a range of new technologies at memorials, museums and other cultural institutions. You will also get to follow the lecture Museums Shaping Futures: Making Sense of Technologies in 2021  by Ewa Drygalska and Too far away or too close to the past? Some reflections on digital games as memory media byTabea Widmann. Both days will be wrapped up with interesting discussions by the experts in the field.

We hope you want to join us for two interesting days of exploring the field of new technologies.

The seminar will be streamed live here on this event-page of our website, and also in the event on facebook. Tune in on 3rd and 4th of february!
