The Sinergia-project "Participatory Knowledge Practices in Analogue and Digital Image Archives" , approved by the Swiss National Science Foundation SNSF, examines the transformation of analogue into digital archives from the perspective of technology, communication, and the anthropology of knowledge.

The goal is the analysis and

systematic description of historical and contemporary archiving practices : the generation, processing, archiving, and dissemination of knowledge.

The complex interplay of participants, epistemological orders, and visualizations of

knowledge in such practices are studied in connection with three collections from the the Swiss Society for Folklore Studies (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Volkskunde SGV).

The aim is to design an interface that enables users to

annotate, contextualize, organize, and link both images and their metainformation.

Within the framework of this project, various positions are to be filled from 1st February 2021.
