About Me


I am Carlotta Capurro, welcome to WorldWideMuseum! This blog collects my experiences in working with digital cultural heritage.

I am a historian of art and culture with a keen interest in digital technologies. My work is situated at the intersection of cultural history, critical heritage studies and digital heritage practice. My research focuses on the ethics and politics of digital cultural heritage, digital archives, and data infrastructures.

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Art DATIS project at the Department of History and Art History of Utrecht University. (Utrecht, The Netherlands).

I hold a PdD in Cultural History and Heritage Studies. My project was part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN (Innovative Training Network)  programme “CHEurope: Critical Heritage Studies and the Future of Europe – towards an integrated, interdisciplinary and transnational training model in cultural heritage research and management”. The title of my project was Digitising European Culture. Europeana and the Government of Digital Cultural Heritage.

Before the PhD, I worked for several years at Visual Dimension bvba (Oudenaarde, Belgium), a company specialised on 3D reconstruction, digital restoration, and interaction with digital heritage
