  • Marie Curie Fellow (Information Studies)

Research interests

  • Crowdsourcing and community-sourcing: co-creative generation of content and knowledge in memory work
  • Participatory museum practices: patterns of engagements and levels of participation – collaborative, cooperative and co-creative frameworks
  • Building connectivities in museums: outreach and community-building, relationship management and new roles of heritage practitioners
  • Digital museum practices: open culture, user-centred-design, digital strategy

I am an Early Stage Researcher within the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network “Participatory Memory Practices (POEM)” and a PhD candidate at the University of Glasgow. My PhD-project examines cultural heritage crowdsourcing with a user-centred approach and focusses on the co-creative process of using digitised collections. With a combination of ethnography and applied research I am investigating cultural heritage hackathons and other formats to gain insights into the co-creative potential of digitised collections. In this project I am collaborating with different institutional partners and their communities, e.g. researchers/learners with The Hunterian (Glasgow), coders/hackers with the Coding da Vinci initiative (Germany), cultural remixers/creatives with the Museum Europäischer Kulturen (Berlin), and climate activists with the Museum für Naturkunde (Berlin). 

In my fieldwork I am exploring the whys and hows of co-creation to better understand the perspective of different user groups. With an affordances-in-practice approach I am aiming to shed a light on the necessary elements which cultural heritage institutions could provide to support co-creative uses of digital collections in the future.

Additional information

I first developed my curiosity in participatory discourses at the University of Hildesheim Foundation (DE) where I graduated in 2013 obtaining a Diploma degree (German equivalent to MSc) in cultural studies and aesthetic communication. My final thesis was an ethnographic case study of a participatory exhibition at the Stapferhaus Lenzburg (CH). Followed by a position as project manager at the Ars Electronica Festival Linz (AT) and a curatorial assistance at the Historical Museum Frankfurt (DE), I gained more practical insights in different digital culture communities and participatory museum work. In my last position as curator for digital museum practice at the Historical Museum Frankfurt I was fortunate to merge both areas of interest and contribute to the growing field of digital museum practice. Since 1 October 2018 I am working as Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Glasgow.
