Workshop 2 : Ethics, Evaluation and Emerging Methodologies

University of Liverpool, October 2022

Transnational Memory Practices in the UK and South Korea – Ethics, Evaluation and Learning in Digital Exhibitions is an ESRC funded network bringing together academic researchers and arts and cultural sector practitioners from South Korea and the UK to establish state-of-the-art thinking about the ways in which digital exhibitions and associated materials addressing complex memory practices, contested or marginalised histories, national identities, and postcolonial pasts function as catalysts for learning and critical discussion within local, national, and transnational communities. Specifically, the project seeks to explore innovative methodologies relating to the (re)presentation of difficult heritage, complex memory and associated ethical considerations arising when digital technologies are utilised by arts and cultural heritage organisations to develop learning and participation.

As part of the network’s activities, we are inviting Early Career Researcher and Postgraduate Researcher participation in a small, half day workshop event at the University of Liverpool. Entitled “Ethics, Evaluation and Emerging Methodologies in Digital Exhibitions and Complex Heritage”, the successful applicants will present their ideas for research and/or evaluation methods in this area. These will be followed by presentations from network members from the UK and South Korea that build on the themes discussed and draw upon practices shared during the network’s wider exchanges. Participants will need to prepare a short 5 min presentation on an aspect of the workshop’s theme, and they will then explore each other’s ideas further during the workshop discussion. All participants will be invited to write short blogs on their presentations/relevant work for inclusion on the project website and in order to facilitate further online discussion with researchers in Seoul.

Presentations and discussions do not need to have a specific geographical focus and we welcome perspectives from any disciplinary area. We have a small amount of funding to help with travel costs (up to £100), and lunch will be provided.

Expression of interest should include name, affiliation, current project/role and a short 100 -200 abstract detailing the contribution you would make to the workshop. These should be sent by email to MemoryEthics@gmail.com by 5pm on the 31st July 2022.  Successful participants will be informed by the end of August.
