About the project

DigiCONFLICT is a Research Consortium funded by the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage. Its founding research partners are based in the United Kingdom, Poland, and Sweden, each exploring the impact of digital heritage in nationally framed cultural conflicts. While acknowledging the role digitalization plays in shaping transnational attitudes to cultural heritage, members of the DigiCONFLICT Research Consortium contest common convictions about the allegedly universal and democratic nature of digital heritage. Also recognizing the role digital heritage plays in increasing access to cultural heritage and in making cultural heritage products readily available across borders, they pay particular attention to the ways in which digital heritage reflects and frames given societies as well as their complex historical and cultural power structures. In the Swedish Reserach Team we explore Oral History as Digital Heritage in general and more specific the digitisation of migrant stories.
