A two-day conference to mark the end of the Nordic research project “Collecting Social Photography”. The conference will focus on two key areas:
- The Collecting Social Photography project, its case studies and its recommendations
- The concept of social digital photography and the practical, ethical and political considerations for museums and archives in collecting it.
The conference will feature a host of international speakers and will also mark the official launch of the project publication and an open source web application: a tool designed to help with collecting social digital photography.
Chair: Professor Haidy Geismar, Department of Anthropology, UCL, UK
