Conference announcement

Posted on 18/10/2018

Collections in Circulation: Conference, 9-10 May 2019

A date for your diaries! We are pleased to announce that the project Conference will take place at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th May 2019.

The conference brings together scholars from the UK and overseas with a shared interest in the mobility of museum collections, past and present. Their papers will address various aspects of the history of the circulation of objects and their re-mobilisation in the context of object exchange, educational projects and community engagement.

Confirmed speakers include Claudia Augustat, Paul Basu, Joshua Bell, Martha Fleming, Tony Kanellos, Sally Gregory Kohlstedt, Luciana Martins, Wayne Modest, Catherine Nichols, Jude Philp, Daniel Simpson, Alice Stevenson, and members of the Mobile Museum project team.

The programme will allow opportunity for extended discussion of the papers and their implications, within sessions and in associated events, including a reception to be held in Kew’s Shirley Sherwood Gallery. There will also be optional tours of the Economic Botany Collection, the Herbarium and Kew’s library & archives.

Full details of the programme and how to register are available on the project website.
