Himalayan Collections at Yale emerges from a hands-on collaborative course at Yale University. Led by Dr Mark Turin and co-taught with colleagues from Yale ITG and two Library staff, and made possible by the generous support of a McCredie Fellowship, the course explores Yale’s network of exceptional collections from and about the Himalayan region as well as technology’s role in preserving and presenting or obscuring these collections.
Working with web-based presentation tools and both digital and tangible media, students uncover the material histories and contexts of art objects, photographs, and personal archives, and help to enrich the collections through collective cataloguing.
In this presentation, Mark reports on the opportunities and challenges of using technology to teach with Yale’s collections.
