Visualising Interdisciplinary Research: Algorithmic Treatment of Museum Case-study Information Sets

This chapter presents the themes of the EU-funded collaborative research project European Museums in an Age of Migrations (MeLa). 'Roma Routes' was a two-year project designed to create sustainable networks of institutions and communities and to provide a platform for the promotion of Roma cultural heritage. Economic conditions forced Slovene Ethnographic Museum (SEM) to significantly scale back its contribution to the 'Roma Routes' activities. A primary legacy of the project is the 'Roma Routes' website, which includes information about the project and its partners, news, events and contacts. The 'Roma Routes' project took place under the third objective of the EU's Culture Programme, Intercultural Dialogue. The partnership itself, it emerged, was not the right mechanism to take this forward, but a series of interconnections between the CoE and 'Roma Routes' partners were much strengthened over the two years of the project. The Byzantine and Christian Museum (BXM) mounted and hosted three exhibitions to encourage dialogue between Roma and non-Roma artists.
