TAG16 | What counts as knowledge in the museum and heritage sector, and how can this influence the quality of decision-making using diverse sources of knowledge and evidence?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will examine different types of knowledge, how they are produced, exchanged, used, interact with each other, but also how they are used to inform policy and decision-making in the heritage and museum sector. The papers will examine everyday or vernacular knowledge as well as epistemic knowledge; how different types of knowledge are represented and given a voice in heritage and museum organisations; and the mechanisms through which we do that (e.g. Responsible Research and Innovation, co-creation and other participatory approaches to developing knowledge).

Organisers: Theano Moussouri; UCL • Raffaella Cecilia; UCL • Ellen Pavey; UCL • Hana Morel; UCL
