Curation and Appropriation of Digital European Heritage

Journal issue, 14. January 2022.


Dear VIEW reader,

We are currently accepting proposals for the upcoming Issue 23 “Curation and Appropriation of Digital European Heritage”. Co-edited by guest editors Abby S. Waysdorf and Eggo Müller, this special issue in collaboration with CADEAH (Curation and Appropriation of Digital European Heritage) seeks to bring together scholars, archivists, and other interested parties to investigate the ways audiovisual heritage is used, and how we can best study this use.

With warm greetings from the VIEW publishing team and editorial board


The CADEAH project was inaugurated in 2018 as a way to study how increasingly digitized audiovisual heritage circulates and is re-used across the digital media landscape. Projects like EUscreen and Europeana have worked to digitize audiovisual heritage across Europe and make it available to the public. However, once material is “made accessible” to the public, what happens? The project drew together programmers, historians, and media researchers to investigate new ways of tracking digitized audiovisual heritage online and make sense of the cultures of historical and archival engagement that exists there. 

We welcome proposals that deal with the major themes of CADEAH: history and memory, uses and interpretations of audiovisual archival material, and digital methods and archives. We would also like to invite archivists to discuss their practices and activities in the digital realm. The goal, as with a remix, is to juxtapose and bring together these existing elements into something new, putting scholars and practitioners working on different aspects of similar topics into dialogue.

Potential topics can be, but are not limited to:

  • Tracking and tracing (audiovisual) archival material

  • Machine vision techniques and audiovisual archives

  • The politics of digitization and archival practices online

  • Practices and cultures of playlisting and rewatching

  • Cultural practices of remix video

  • Grassroots archives and archival practices

  • Transforming or creating historical narratives through remix

  • Memory practices and historical consciousness in digital heritage

Submission details & Important dates

  • Deadline for abstracts (max. 500 words): 14 January 2022. Authors are encouraged to send in a short biography with their abstract.

  • Notifications of acceptance will be sent out to authors by the end of February 2022.

  • The issue will be published in June 2023.
