The Aesthetic Archive: exploring alternative approaches to digital archives and collections

a public sharing and discussion event

Wednesday, 2 April 2014 from 15:30 to 18:00

Anatomy Museum, 6th Floor, King's Building, Strand Campus, King's College London

The Aesthetic Archive project seeks to consider how the ongoing development, structuring and public consumption of large, digital archives and collections can be informed and expanded through the application of new technologies and alternative approaches. The initiative is a cross-sector collaboration led by Michael Takeo Magruder (Artist and Researcher, Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London) in partnership with Mark Flashman (World Service, British Broadcasting Corporation), and is part of the Cultural Institute at Kings' Innovation Programme.

This public sharing event will outline the core ideas behind the collaboration and will bring together a panel of experts to discuss important issues surrounding digital archives. Panellists will include:

•        Sheila Anderson (Professor of e-Research, KCL)
•        Tobias Blanke (Senior Lecturer, Centre for e-Research, KCL)
•        Andrew Prescott (Professor of Digital Humanities, KCL)
•        Michael Smethurst (Development Producer, BBC R&D)
•        Zillah Watson (Editor, BBC R&D)

The event is free to attend and will be followed by a wine and drinks reception.
