The Particip-Arc network invites you to a day dedicated to young researchers engaged in participatory cultural research. The day will take place at the National Museum of Natural History on November 16. Registration is free but mandatory before 11 November.

Participatory research?

The use of public participation in the scientific field is developing in many disciplines (archaeology, linguistics, architecture and urban planning, music, media, creation and tangible and intangible heritage...).

Participation in cultural research is transforming science-society relations and can be seen as a new way of building and sharing scientific methods and knowledge. Libraries, archives or collections departments are particularly active in these areas.

Many scientific, ethical, legal, economic, technical and institutional questions arise.

The work of doctoral and post-doctoral students will be presented around 3 axes:

  1. The scope(s) of participatory cultural research
  2. Methodologies and tools for participation
  3. Can participation be institutionalized?
