Museums and Machines: Digital Cultural Heritage Horizons

Dr Kathryn ECCLES is a Research Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute
and Pembroke College, University of Oxford. A historian by training, her
research interests lie primarily in the Digital Humanities, ranging from
the re-organisation of cultural heritage and higher education in the
digital world, to broader debates surrounding the human and social
aspects of innovation. Appointed as the University of Oxford’s first
Digital Humanities Champion (2014-6), Kathryn’s current work focuses on
the ways in which museums and cultural heritage organisations can
implement new tools and technologies to enhance visitor engagement, and
to understand how visitors engage with collections.
