Media, Communication, Digitalization
This Roundtable in workshop format brings together field researchers and media managers associated with various projects across the Humanities across Borders: Asia and Africa in the World (HaB) programme (https://iias.asia/hab) of the International Institute of Asian Studies, Leiden, to discuss the various types of data collected so far and to work towards integrating different digital archiving and web techniques into what could be referred to as an HaB archive in-the-making.
From oral histories and visual narratives of settlement and dispossession, following craft techniques and practice-based transmission of knowledge, exploring words as vehicles of meaning and mobilities, to exploring ecologies of food practices in urban settings, knowledge-practices are analytical tools of research conducted under the HaB program. The workshop will explore the potential of creating an online repository and knowledge sharing forum across HaB’sgeographies in Taiwan, Thailand, Myanmar, India, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana and Senegal.
The digital portal will archive, ecologies of lived experiences along HaB’s four sites of knowledge and meaning – place, practice, word and food – and also allow for new sites to emerge. Highlighting the experiential domain, the archive will help in the creation of in situ curricula and pedagogies anywhere in academic and non-academic practice. Workshop participants will receive training on using word, sound, image and mapping tools to record and share their work on the HaB platform.
