Yesterday the student had a whole day at Museum of Evolution in Uppsala, as part of the course Digital Implementations in Heritage. They were able to take part in lectures from some of the staff and were shown a part of the museums collection.
At the end of the day the students took part in a exercise which was headed by Helena Wangefelt Ström, pdh-student and lecturer at Department of ALM. The students were instructed to suggest different layers of identities and data sets that could be attributed to different cultural objects
The goal of the exercise was to understand what the uses the different objects have and have had, for who and by whom these objects have been preserved and what context in time and space they are a part of.
