Abstract: The Special l Theme examines the dynamic relationships between production, availability and usage of Big Data, laying out a research agenda for digital heritage at the time of the ‘data turn’. Over the past fifteen years, a proliferation of heritage data has been generated by ‘ecosystems of distributed practices’ enacted by the co-working of bodies, cultural identities, organisational workflows, software, application programming interfaces, etc. (Ruppert 2018, 19–20). The authors of research articles and commentaries in this collection explore the three macro-dimensions along which we can map transformations of and by heritage in Big Data ecologies: 1) ontologies, or heritage as datified resources; 2) interactions; and 3) methodologies and epistemologies
