Call for Presentations

for the workshop ‘Museum Work: Hierarchies and Barriers, Exclusion and Inclusion’

DEADLINE March 6 2023

This is the first workshop from the new AHRC-funded research network, Making Museum Professionals, 1850-the present. The network brings together academics and museum professionals to investigate the past, present and future of museum work. We seek to support and develop campaigns for fairness, inclusion and transparency in the museum sector by investigating the historical roots of the museum professions and the structures that supported them, from the birth of the modern museum (c. 1850) to the present day.  

The first workshop will take place on 23rd May 2023, at Birkbeck, University of London. Confirmed keynotes so far include Professor Fiona Candlin (Birkbeck), Tamsin Russell (Museums Association), and Louise McAward-White for Fair Museum Jobs. There are a small number of bursaries of up to £100 available to support the participation of minoritized researchers and/or practitioners without institutional support.
