Cecilia Lindhé is Director of the Centre for Digital Humanities at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. She is also one of the coordinators within The Centre for Critical Heritage Studies, where her special focus is on how to engage heritage and archival collections in digital environments. Lindhé is also a board member of the Academy of Cultural Heritage in Gothenburg.
Lindhé holds a PhD (2008) in Comparative Literature from Uppsala University and she has continuously been working with issues that involve digital research infrastructures, the archive in a digital age, information technology and pedagogy. Lindhé has more than 15 years of experience in working with various DH-projects, not only as director of CDH and former director of HUMlab at Umeå University, but also as researcher in several granted projects about digital research infrastructure and visualizations of cultural heritage.
Her current research spans ancient/medieval rhetorical and aesthetic theory in relation to digital materiality, digital representation of cultural heritage, screen culture and digital literature and art. Lindhé recently finished the research project Imitatio Mariae. Virgin Mary as a Virtuous Model in Medieval Sweden and she is currently involved in three large research projects Representations and Reconfigurations of the Digital in Swedish Literature and Art 1950–2010, Conjuring up the Artist from the Archive: The Example of Ivar Arosenius and Moravian Memoirs: Tracing Movements and History of the Moravian Church (1750-2012).
Furthermore, Lindhé is also working on two projects that relate to Malta: Firstly, a book length study about the Gollcher family, its movements from Danzig in the early 18th century, via Sweden to Malta. Secondly, a series of articles about Scandinavian travellers to Malta from 1650–1950.
