Museums and the Digital

A nebook_9789089646613_178w collection, edited by Chiel van den Akker and Susan LegĂȘne, is entitled Museums in a Digital Culture: How Art and Heritage Become Meaningful. It has just appeared at the Amsterdam University Press. The table of contents and introduction are available on the AUP website.
Sarah de Rijcke and I have a chapter in the book: Networked Knowledge and Epistemic Authority in the Development of Virtual Museums. It is based on earlier research we pursued in Network Realism.
Material in this article also appears in Image as Interface, Library trends 59 (2011), analyzed from a library and information technology point of view. It has been reworked here with a focus on museums, curation and heritage preservation. We hope this publication will reach a new audience and stimulate cross-overs between media studies, STS and museum studies.
