Call for proposals and how to apply

Please note: Applications to participate in the workshop are now closed. Applicants will be notified in the week beginning 14 March.

The third iteration of the Una Europa PhD Workshop, Digital Cultural Heritage: Mobilities, Mutuality and Heritage Futures, invites participants with a diverse range of expertise and interests, both topical and methodological, to consider how the digital (as broadly understood) intersects with, poses, and can potentially address some of the biggest challenges and ideas in cultural heritage today.

By participating in this workshop, you will join a community of critical and ambitious thinkers engaging with the key questions that will shape (digital) heritage in the coming years and decades. In addition, you will have the opportunity to develop skills in and experiment with digital tools to engage, build and communicate with communities around your research topic or methodology.

The PhD Workshop will take place between 30 May and 1 June 2022 and is jointly organised by the University of Edinburgh and Helsinfors universitet. The Workshop will be a physical event, with parallel sessions taking place in Edinburgh and Helsinki.

Digital Cultural Heritage: Mobilities, Mutuality and Heritage Futures invites participants with a diverse range of expertise and interests, both topical and methodological, to consider how the digital (as broadly understood) intersects with, poses, and can potentially address some of the biggest challenges and ideas in cultural heritage today.

These major themes include:

  • The intersections between digital practices and the cultural heritages of increasingly mobile people and communities.
  • Public engagement with digitised heritage; and how heritage organisations use the digital to engage with publics and communities.
  • The digital preservation and (re)production of objects, sites, texts, practices, tangible and intangible heritages.
  • The heritage of the digital and the mediated themselves; and the ways in which this heritage is preserved and produced, engages people, and becomes the heritage of a mobile, migrant world.
  • Constructions of heritage in digital media genres - who debates, discusses and speaks for cultural heritage, and how?

By participating in this workshop, you will join a community of critical and ambitious thinkers engaging with the key questions that will shape (digital) heritage in the coming years and decades. In addition, you will have the opportunity to develop skills in and experiment with digital tools to engage, build and communicate with communities around your research topic or methodology.
