In July 2019, we were pleased to invite interested scholars and other interested parties working with school museums, collections and educational history to participate in the 18th Symposium for School Museums and History of Education Collections.
The purpose of the 18th symposium was to focus on the challenges in preserving, communicating and working with school museums, educational collections and educational history in a global and digital era. How do we best preserve digitized material? How can we use existing digital platforms to boost our collections? Why and how do we share our digitized collections with the world? How can we use digital aspects in physical exhibitions? Which stories do we tell in an age of globalization? Moreover, what are the digital possibilities when researching? These were some of the challenges we addressed during the symposium.
The symposium took place at the Royal Danish Library’s location in Emdrup, Copenhagen, at the Danish School of Education (DPU) and Aarhus University Library, from 3-5 July, 2019.
The 19th International Symposium for School Museums and History of Education Collections will take place in Berlin, Germany, 28 – 30 June 2023.
