BTU@ACMC21: Heritage Studies & Digital Sustainability
Over the past few months the BTU@ACMC21 hub has been meeting online regularly to discuss what borders mean to us, to heritage studies and in relation to our digital learning experiences as well as the ways these can be overcome. We have been sharing experiences about the borders we each face, coming from a diverse variety of backgrounds, and asking our fellow university students for their insights too. As part of our hub, we will also be hosting ‘Thesis Talks.’ Check out the poster below for more information about it on our poster!
