Event datum:

Locatie: DANS office

DANS will have again the students from the honors programme of Trent Hil, from the iSchool, University of Washington, Seattle. This programme will be held in collaboration with faculty and professionals from several Dutch academic, research, and cultural organisation.

DANS (Data Archiving and Network Services), the Dutch national eHumanities platform, the Vrije Universiteit, the Delft Public Library (DOK), and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences are host of this programme.

It will be based in Amsterdam, the political and cultural capital of the Netherlands;. It will provide the students with a set of outstanding case study in how libraries, museums, and information services engage with diverse populations both in their everyday functioning and in their attempts at creating innovative programs and resources. Outside of the classroom, participants will get to take part in field trips and site visits to museums, libraries, and historical sites as part of their immersion in Dutch culture as well as to see how these institutions further their educational functions. The course itself will examine how innovation works in library, information, and museum services, practices, and designs in the Netherlands and Belgium. It will look at what, exactly, “innovation” means in institutional settings; the interplay between culture and values in program design; the ways libraries and museums work with diversity, equity, and inclusion; research, assessment, and the process of making a case for innovation; and innovation-focused program assessment. We will also look at digital humanities and digital scholarship in general and the role(s) they play in innovation in the contemporary library and museum worlds. We will explore these in topics as well as questions of how the cultural-heritage sector deals with the legacy of colonialism, neo-liberalism, and contemporary social problems in both the Netherlands and the U.S.
