Behind the Themes
Grosvenor Museum, Chester 7 – 8th November 2019
This conference will consider how thematic or synthesised views of the past are studied and presented in museums. Have you been working on an activity, exhibition or research that focussed on a particular chronological period or theme? How, for instance, is the concept of ‘Roman’ presented to the public? How, if at all, does this vary between museums and collections and what developments might we expect in the future? What or whose agendas are driving what is displayed archaeologically in museums and how is this affecting interpretation and engagement with collections?
To propose either a long or short paper (30 mins or 10 mins), please send an abstract (maximum 200 words) and a short biography to the SMA Secretary at Katherine.Baxter@leeds.gov.uk. The closing deadline for proposals is 31st August 2019
