The Social Interpretation project is a Research and Development exercise joint funded by the NESTA / Arts Council / AHRC digital R&D Fund, and Imperial War Museums (IWM). At its heart, it aims to bring successful social interactions already found online and apply them across IWM’s collections – making social objects out of museums objects.
Social Interpretation is being developed by three key partners:
- IWM – lead partner, graphic design, online and in-gallery application development, project management
- UCL – formative evaluation, linguistic analysis and user-centred design from Digital Humanities, and mobile development from CASA
- Knowledge Integration – server-side application, database and API development, and social media integration
We’re all knocking about on Twitter. We’re also using the hashtag #socialInterp.
