Methods of Collection, Organisation and Interpretation
Data – Asset – Method: Harnessing the Infinite Archive is an international research network led by the University of Nottingham and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute. The network brings together university partners in the UK and US, and with cultural institutions and industry partners in the UK. Together, we explore the shaping of digital archives and in turn, technology and knowledge.
The first workshop focuses on the ways in which the infinite archive challenges traditional methods of interpretation and facilitates new forms of multi-perspectival enquiry.
