This invites reflection on how these
modern technologies impact the generation of new questions. In order to examine
this, the Max Planck Research Group Visualizing Science in Media Revolutions is
organising a series of online seminars that asks researchers, librarians,
software developers, curators, archivists, and artists to reflect on the impact
that digital media and tools have on their working practices.
In the second seminar of this year, we have invited three speakers to reflect on how digital technologies have changed approaches to the acquirement and management of information about the past and present; what impact the changing dynamic between the analogue and digital manifestation of this information has on their working practices; and how the digital format affected their use and questions that are asked or could be asked. The format for this seminar consists of three 10-minute lightning talks, which are followed by questions and discussion.
Anja-Silvia Goeing, Professor at the University of Zürich and Associate in the History Department at Harvard University; Douglas McCarthy, Collections Engagement Manager, Europeana Foundation; Carlotta Paltrinieri, Bibliotheca Hertziana - Max Planck Institute for Art History in Rome / Senior Researcher at 'Towards a National Collection'
