Civic Epistemologies: Development of a Roadmap for Citizen Researchers in the Digital Culture

Project: Projects from Previous Employment

Project Details

Description

The CIVIC EPISTEMOLOGIES project is about the participation of citizens in research on cultural heritage and humanities.

ICT are powerful drivers of creativity, but specific technical know-how is still generally lacking in the creative industries sectors. In addition, humanities scholarship is not yet taking full advantage of ICT to engage with wider audiences. New skills are needed to enable the cultural sector to grasp employment and commercial opportunities.

The project aims to develop and validate a Roadmap for the use of e-Infrastructures to support the participation of European citizens in research on cultural heritage and digital humanities. Critically, the Roadmap will offer support for improved social cohesion arising from the sharing of knowledge and understanding of Europe’s citizens common and individual cultures.
