Documenting the ‘made world’ and endangered knowledge

By Nik Petek-Sargeant | 5 November 2019

EMKP has been featured on the Museum Ethnographer’s Group blog, which discusses our aims and what we do.

Here is a short passage from the post:

EMKP’s broad aims also raise questions that need to be addressed in order to further ethnographic documentation methods. Some of these include:

  • How do we best capture knowledge using digital recording methods?
  •  How do we preserve culturally-specific knowledge?
  •  How do we approach different knowledge systems and modes of understanding?
  • What type of metadata and repository structure is most suitable for such a diversity of data?

The programme is beginning to explore these issues through its first round of grantees who are now beginning their fieldwork.
