The major work that I finished this week was the "cultural diversity" tab of the postcode atlas table with the data of Melbourne each postal area's top 4 ancestry, country of birth of person, and language information. Also, this week I got to see all the data that I was working with on the ACMI global map, how excited! Next week I will stick to refining the postcode atlas table with additional data for each postcode. So far we only got the majority data for all the information, such as the age majority, family income majority, and working industry majority. It is very important to also add top2 and top3 information to make a contrast with the top1 information, and to show the integrity and accuracy of these data.
Museum Diplomacy in the Digital Age explores online museums as sites of contemporary cultural diplomacy.
Building on scholarship that highlights how museums can constitute and regulate citizens, construct national communities, and project messages across borders, the book explores the political powers of museums in their online spaces.
Global Trends in Museum Diplomacy traces the transformation of museums from publicly or privately funded heritage institutions into active players in the economic sector of culture. Exploring how this transformation reconfigured cultural diplomacy, the book argues that museums have become autonomous diplomatic players on the world stage.
The web application ACMI Soft Power Map is a focused single-museum online tool to geo-visualise and assess the ACMI’s “attraction power” in Melbourne and abroad. It maps the ACMI’s collection appeal power, digital engagements and international connections in different countries around the world. This tool offers multilayered exploration of ACMI cultural resources and social outputs to reveal social-demographic, cultural and economic factors that affect its capacity to attract larger visitation and revenue.
