Social Media and Decolonising Scottish Heritage | July SHSMG Event (ONLINE)

In the movement to decolonise Scottish heritage, where does social media fit in?

For our July event, Aayushi Gupta and Jeanne Coppens from Ourchives, an Edinburgh-based anti-colonial grassroots project, will discuss how Scotland’s museums, archives and historic properties can use their digital platforms to inquire into the origins and representation of their collections.

Following the recent Black Lives Matter protests, and with more and more people using social media and other internet technologies during lockdown, a discussion on the relationship between social media and the decolonisation of our museum collections has never been more timely. Join us to discuss how we can use social media to help decolonise Scottish heritage.

After the short presentation, there’ll be time for a Q&A and discussion. We’ll also be chatting about the pandemic and Black Lives Matter, and what they mean for people in social media roles.
