Engaging the public with history is becoming an increasingly popular goal for many academic projects, museums, and other heritage institutions. The question is: how can history be remixed into interactive digital experiences that resonate with different public audiences? This seminar will feature different examples of existing digital heritage experiences including mobile apps, a transmedia (cross-media) story of forced emigration during the Irish Famine, and an interactive web documentary about the 18-19th Century transportation of UK convicts to Australia. Nicole Basaraba, visiting researcher at the C²DH, will also discuss a methodology developed during her PhD that aims to assist multidisciplinary and cross-sector teams create digital experiences and she will explain how it is being applied to the creation of locative content for remixing industrial history for the Minett Region of Luxembourg.
