Research and documentation are integral components of museum activities centered on intangible heritage. Key questions for the lecture are as follows: Which forms of intangible heritage should be researched and documented (What is being researched and why)? How should communities be involved in the research process? What kinds of information about intangible heritage should a researcher gather? How can a researcher gather and document information in such a way as to reflect the diversity of local viewpoints and voices? When are photos, video, and sound recordings appropriate for the documenting of ICH? What kinds of permissions should be obtained at the time of documentation? How might these permissions change in different contexts, and how might they change over time?
