Collections in Circulation: Mobile Museum Conference, 9-10 May, 2019

We are pleased to announce that this Conference, organised in association with the Mobile Museum project, will take place at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th of May 2019.

The conference will bring 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, Sally Gregory Kohlstedt, Luciana Martins, Wayne Modest, Catherine Nichols, Jude Philp, Daniel Simpson, Alice Stevenson, and members of the Mobile Museum project team.

Details of the programme are available here

Registration for the conference (via the project website below) will open in early December.
