The British Library's Digital Research Team presents the fourth event in our Digital Conversations series.

This event will focus on digital cultural heritage and how its representations influence human perceptions of texts and documents, cultural objects and artefacts, and past environments.

Does digital restoration and manipulation affect the true representation of the original source? How do virtual representations of material culture and art influence our perceptions of past reality? What are the ethical concerns when digitising cultural heritage? Where texts are concerned does the digital copy impinge on the intellectual value of the original? What are the innovative technologies that help our understanding of material culture? To debate some of these questions we have invited a panel of experts in curatorship, digital cultural heritage, 3D imaging of objects and environments, and computer modelling for virtual reconstruction.

Attendance is free but demand is high and places are strictly limited. Book your ticket now to avoid disappointment.
