Writing

I have written extensively on open access, copyright and digital cultural heritage, and I am the founder and editor of the Medium publication Open GLAM. At Europeana, I have published many interviews and case studies for Europeana Pro, and curated, written and edited online exhibitions for the Europeana website.

I’ve highlighted three of my most representative articles here, followed by a selection of my other writing.
