10.15: Keynote #1 Kathryn Eccles: “Using crowdsourcing to understand public engagement with cultural heritage”
Kathryn holds the position of Research Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford. Her main interests lie within the field of Digital Humanities, focusing on the impact of new technologies on cultural heritage, and on scholarly behaviour and research. Her current research looks at the role of crowdsourcing in the arts, in particular the potential of new information and communication technologies to promote public engagement with and awareness of museum collections and to elicit new information about users and usage. This AHRC-funded research focused on the project Your Paintings as the key case study.
Kathryn will talk about experiences with crowdsourcing efforts in the cultural heritage sector. More specifically, Kathryn will talk about how the national art-tagging project Your Paintings enhances search-ability and visibility of small and large English collections and the public ownership of shared heritage.
