The MIT Press

This book is a comprehensive theoretical discourse on cultural heritage and digital media. It explores themes of museums and heritage in relation to “digital culture,” and considers the extent to which digital technologies are a cultural construct. Part I deals with the confluence of culture and technology in the representation of art and heritage collections for both Western and indigenous communities, with an emphasis on prevailing arguments about the relationships between material and digital objects. Part II looks at the confluence of digital technologies, information management, knowledge, learning, and user research in the cultural heritage sector, and Part III examines the intersection of cultural heritage research, documentation, and interpretation in the context of virtual reality.

Keywords:   cultural heritage, digital media, museums, digital culture, digital objects, digital technologies, information management, virtual reality, knowledge, learning
