Technology, Museums, and the Long(er) Now

Museums & Galleries of NSW

Susan is a PhD candidate at the University of Newcastle, author of the museumgeek blog and museopunks, all of which address issues confronting museums in the digital age.

Technology cycles move quickly. Software written for the first iPhone does not work on contemporary models. Has this pace of change caused museums and cultural institutions to consider digital and new technologies through an artificially short lens?

Susan’s presentation will consider some of the ways that technology might enable museums to think about engagement and digital work through a longer lens, and propose a few reasons why museums (and those who work in them) should take a longer view into perspective.
