Keck Award shortlist is announced

We were delighted to receive so many entries for our Keck Awards this year, which highlight projects demonstrating excellent public outreach around conservation. They represent a very wide range of approaches from every part of the world, and demonstrate how creative public engagement has grown in the past two years, despite - and sometimes because - of the obstacles of the pandemic.

Anyone teaching today is teaching in an altered world. That part is clear.

Imaging Scientist (f/m/d)

The Göttingen State and University Library (SUB Göttingen) is one of the largest academic libraries in Germany. The Library holds more than about 9 million printed items and digital resources including exceptional special collections of rare books, manuscripts, maps and other cultural artefacts. The SUB Göttingen offers a wide range of services supporting the needs of students, academics and researchers as well as the wider public. It serves as a central hub of Digital Humanities and digitization at a national level and beyond. This post, newly created with partial funding from the Volkswagenstiftung, is intended to provide innovative digital approaches to analysing and interpreting written sources and other historical evidence, and to establish imaging science as an important new research area at Göttingen University.

We had the sad news this past summer that IIC Fellow Dr Graham Morgan died after illness following a stroke in 2017. Graham will be remembered as one of the generation of archaeological conservators at the start of the profession who forged new techniques and ideas and could put his talents and skills to a wide variety of materials and situations.

The volume of digital data in the world is increasing exponentially. In 2020, 64.2 zettabytes of data were created: a 314% increase since 2015. In our growing digital world, we must sustain heritage in the digital domain. This includes ensuring that cultural and creative sectors are economically competitive and helped to thrive in a digital world.
