Cultural Heritage research from Helsinki discussed recently with UK doctoral researchers

Falmouth harbour – chilly in November but still beautiful.

On Friday 23 November Suzie Thomas spoke as Keynote at a residential weekend for doctoral researchers from Falmouth University, the University of Plymouth and the University of Western England.

The weekend, for 3D3 researchers (coming from various arts and heritage backgrounds and using a vast range of digital, creative and participatory approaches in their research and practices) funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council, was an opening event for recently started researchers on the programme. It took place at the Penryn campus of Falmouth University in Cornwall, England.

Thomas talked about Lapland’s Dark Heritage, a recently completed Academy of Finland collaboration between the University of Helsinki and University of Oulu. The project drew on a number of theories and methodological approaches that spanned many disciplines including archaeology, ethnology, cultural heritage studies, crowdsourcing methods and community engagement.

The weekend went very well, and there are hopes that the 3D3 students and their supervisors can visit Finland in the future!
