Xiaolin SUN  Exploring the use of digital technologies in representing ethnic minority culture

Supervision Team: Supervision Team: Prof. Eugene Ch’ng, Dr Thomas Hirzel


Description: Working across cultural anthropology, museum studies, and digital heritage, Xiaolin Sun’s research examines how digital technologies and media narratives can represent ethnic minority culture via the use of objects, and thereby add value to both the culture and museums. The intersection between digital technologies and ethnic minority culture is the central theme in the research. It aims to develop an epistemic framework for the digital curation and representation of culture via the use of virtual reality and story-telling.
