|Nina Wanča is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Arts, where she teaches in several study programmes (New Media Studies, Information Science and Librarianship, Museum Studies). Her research focuses on the use of new media and technologies in memory institutions, especially in museums and exhibitions, in the context of designing for visitors and their needs. She also profits from her interdisciplinary background in journalism and audiovisual media in specific museum projects (currently the Birthhouse of Vítězslav Hálek, in the past, for example, the Fráni Šrámek Museum or the Hrdlička Museum of Man).
Her research focuses not only on how visitors perceive exhibitions and technology, but also on how museum employs approach them. In the INDIHU project, she was part of the team which is being developed original successful software for creating virtual exhibitions. She also scientifically analyzed the created virtual exhibitions. She is currently working on the use of games in museums as part of education, the quality of museum texts and visitor photography.
Among the most significant projects she lately has worked on is the collaboration on new interactive exhibitions at the National Memory Institute with non-profit organization Post Bellum. She has also created virtual exhibitions, such as the Action K exhibition on the brutal attacks taken against the Church in the 1950s, and an international project on the fate of confiscated books during the Second World War.
