  • Nuts and bolts of digital heritage. Bringing the past into the virtual

    • Authors: Geoffrey Gowlland, Gro Ween
      Abstract: In this introductory essay to the special issue, we identify key commonthemes that are developed in the article contributions. We start by attending tothe qualities of what we call “digital heritage ecosystems”, and we reflect on thevaried affordances that digital tools and platforms offer. We go on to address thecomplex political dimensions of digital heritage, and how structures of authorityrelating to heritage are constructed and can be destabilised by the digital. Finally,we take a look at what goes on behind the scenes of digital heritage initiatives,what is involved in setting up digital platforms and keeping the systems running.This involves bringing to light the materiality of the digital, what it implies interms of materials, costs and labour. We put forward these perspectives as a wayof domesticating the digital and dispelling some of its mystery to make it moreadapted to the needs of heritage work.
  • Working in the digital contact zone. The digital sharing portal for Roald
           Amundsen’s Gjoa Haven collection

    • Authors: Tone Wang
      Abstract: In this article a story of digital sharing is told. The focus is on a collectionof traditional Inuit material culture brought together on King William Islandover 22 months in 1903–1905 by Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen. Today,shared interest in and concern for this collection centres the collaboration betweenthe Nattilik Heritage Centre in Gjoa Haven, Arctic Canada, and the Museumof Cultural History in Oslo, Norway. A digital sharing portal launched in 2017sets out to realise the space and framework for crucial collaborative practicesconcerning knowledge sharing and access to the material. The article discusses thisprocess, using Clifford’s perspectives on the contact zone (1997) as an intake todiscuss the construction and practice of this digital sharing site.
  • Digitalisation of crafts. Comparative approaches to Arctic fur

    • Authors: Gro Ween, Nancy Wachowich
      Abstract: Efforts to digitally engage with indigenous source communities andcraftspeople are many and diverse. This paper has as its starting point a comparisonbetween two such digital engagements, both celebrations of Arctic animal furclothing, yet each at seemingly opposite ends of a continuum of possible digitalinterfaces. Skinddragter Online and Mittimatalik Arnait Miqsuqtuit Collectivewere both launched the same year, 2015, in Copenhagen and Mittimatalik,Nunavut, Canada respectively. By comparing each with the other, our ambition isto illuminate some of the curatorial choices involved in the making of such digitalplatforms, and the consequences they have in terms of wider visibility, audiencesreached, knowledge included, and collaborative engagements invited. Postcolonialcritique can come at the expense of general outreach, conversations betweendesignated experts can be difficult to make equal. Technological sophistication canbe challenged by the digital divide. Attention to issues of cultural appropriation isa constant. Yet, driving these initiatives is the need to maintain a digital diversityin online and offline spaces.
  • Heritage image-making. How digital documentation makes the artefact in
           ethnographic museum collecting

    • Authors: Geoffrey Gowlland
      Abstract: This article reflects on the relationships between artefacts newly collectedby ethnographic museums and the digital images that illustrate such artefacts inmuseum archives and catalogues. Taking three examples derived from collectingactivities and ethnographic fieldwork in China and Taiwan, the article reflectson the potential of images to not simply “contextualise” artefacts, but to shapethe relationships that are established between museums, the makers of artefacts,and the related source communities. More specifically, through three cases it isdiscussed how images can: 1) come to position makers within a tradition, 2)offer solutions to issues of rights over designs, and 3) link the collected artefactto the land from which materials were gathered. In the concluding discussion,four aspects of “images of collecting” are discussed: their materiality, their role inthe creation of value, risks of misinterpretation, and responsibilities involved inediting and selecting images. 
  • Femte Thuleekspedition. Mod nye fællesskaber

    • Authors: Martin Appelt, Pernille Feldt, Anne Mette Jørgensen, Christian Sune Pedersen, Jacob Riddersholm Wang
      Abstract: Since 2014, the National Museum of Denmark has collaborated with theCanadian organisations Kitikmeot Heritage Society (Cambridge Bay, Nunavut)and Geomatics & Cartographic Research Centre at Carleton University to makematerials from the Inuinnait (Copper Inuit) area collected during the 5th ThuleExpedition (1921–1924) digitally available firstly to people in Cambridge Bay,and secondly to a wider public. The ambition is now to make the totality of the5th Thule Expedition material digitally available through the so-called Tumisiutproject,in order to integrate it into a wider framework of a new Nordic curatorialand research collaboration around Arctic and Sub-Arctic collections. Pivotalaspects of these collaborations are discussions on various domains of ownershiprights such as “world heritage”, “cultural rights”, and “copyright”. The initial stepshave recently been taken by the National Museum of Denmark and the Museumof Cultural History, University of Oslo.
  • Mapping the fields. Geographies of knowledge production. Et
           forskningsprosjekt om romlige-digitale-arkivale sammenfiltringer

    • Authors: Kristina Skåden
      Abstract: Mapping the Fields: Geographies of Knowledge Production, is ahumanities experiment, exploring fieldworks of the nineteenth century. By studyingfieldworks, the project investigates production and circulation of knowledge,and the role of space and place in these practices. Furthermore, and that is theconcern of this article, Mapping the Fields is one possible answer to an ongoingdiscussion about how the building of a database, data model, and digital mapsmay be fruitful for research related to Norwegian Folklore Archives. The projectengages the general idea of mapping as a process within network relations. In thisarticle, it is argued that concepts developed in relations between geography andliterature studies are fruitful within a Culture History approach to Spatial History.The article problematizes how “the digital” stabilizes “facts” and contributes toinspiration, new research questions and new knowledge.
  • Digitale visjoner. En kartlegging. Identitet, tilgjengelighet, og digitalt

    • Authors: Taran Wold, Gro Ween
      Abstract: As part of a Nordic Council funded collaboration between the DanishNationalmuseet and the Norwegian Kulturhistorisk museum, a mapping ofNordic museum intitutions’ approaches to the digital was undertaken. This articlepresents a section of the report, focusing on the grand ambitions of Nordic digitalapproaches, the challenges institutions are and have been facing in fulfilling theseambitions and finally, we point to the one part of Nordic digital initiatives thatrarely have received attention; that of the audience. In this article we show thatthe many challenges that Nordic digital ambitions suffer under have had the resultthat museum audiences have been largely ignored. We present Nordic digitalambitions, emphasising how the audiences in fact are central to these aspirations,and summarise the Nordic research currently available about our digital museumusers.
  • Digital archaeology. A democratic utopia

    • Authors: Irmelin Axelsen
      Abstract: In this article a brief account of a seemingly low-impact news-reportand the ensuing debate on Facebook is used to illustrate how online meaningexchanges may lead to increased polarization, and deep disagreement, betweentwo particular groups: metal-detectorists and archaeologists. In addition someissues for how to conduct ethical online research, such as when information shouldbe seen as public or private, is discussed. I conclude by suggesting possible ways todecrease the existing divide between two groups with similar interests.
  • Using digital technology as a mode of experimental display. Thoughts on an
           exhibition on stave church portals

    • Authors: Jason Falkenburg
      Abstract: This article reflects on the digital exhibitionary approaches that wereexplored as part of the exhibition Looking Through Portals held at the CulturalHistory Museum in Oslo in 2018. The exhibition experimented with new ways ofdisplaying, representing and experiencing stave church portals. I discuss two ofthe exhibition’s installations that used digital technologies – a video display and a3D print. These point to how powers of suggestion in museum displays can bringvisitors to experience heritage in new ways.
  • Artivism and the para-institution. The Partisan Café and Museum of
           Burning Questions, Bergen Assembly 2016

    • Authors: Charlotte Præstegaard Schwartz, Anne Scott Sørensen
      Abstract: This article presents a case study of the assembled events of The PartisanCafé and The Museum of Burning Questions, curated by the transnational groupfreethought as part of their contribution to the Bergen Assembly 2016. It is arguedthat the assemblage forms an experiment to materialize present theories of radicaldemocracy and the radical art institution, respectively, and take the form of apara-institutional artivism. On this ground, and drawing on the concept of theassemblage, it is discussed what the outcome and learning of the experiment mightbe. The events played simultaneously in the city and on social platforms such asFacebook, mixlr and vimeo and together with released material on the internetfrom freethought these resources provide the empirical base of the case study. Theauthors participated in the opening week of September 2016 and the analyses aresupported by on site observation.
  • Engaging or transmitting' Health at the science centre

    • Authors: Catharina Thiel Sandholdt, Marianne Achiam
      Abstract: Science centres have a strong commitment to education, but theimplications of that commitment change over time. The discovery pedagogy ofthe first science centres is gradually being replaced with a more dialogic approachthat acknowledges that science has different meanings for different people. Here,we follow the transition of a Danish science centre towards this new approach; atransition driven by the development of a dialogic exhibition on health. To thisend, we study the adaptive transformation of scientific content from its origin inscientific literature to its embodiment in the exhibition, using discourse analysisto track its deconstruction and reconstruction. We observe that although thescience centre’s established discovery pedagogy does challenge the implementationof dialogic perspectives on health, the participatory approach taken in thedevelopment process successfully overcame these challenges. In conclusion, we offerour perspectives on the implications of our findings for science centres.
  • Noget at tale om! Museet som katalysator for ensomhedsforebyggelse hos

    • Authors: Cecilie Monrad
      Abstract: In recent years, there has been an increase in cooperative projectsbetween the cultural and the healthcare sector. International research shows thatthere is a good reason for that. From a holistic approach to the body and mind,it appears that the arts in various aspects can have significant impact on mentalhealth, and that it can improve the individual’s quality of life. This text describesa collaborative project between The Frederiksberg Museums and FrederiksbergHealth Centre. The purpose of this project is the prevention of loneliness in seniorcitizens. The survey questions are based on the potential significance of the museumcollection as a catalyst for conversation and thus relationship formation. Inaddition, we have wished to examine the degree to which a museum’s interventioncan strengthen the social networks of the participants.
