Roundtable on Heritage & Museums, University of Warwick November 6th

Heritage & Museums: Values, Ethics and Communities

Clive Gray and Charlotte Woodhead of the University of Warwick cordially invite you to the first of two roundtable discussions, the first being on the topic of Values and Communities. These sessions aim to bring together academics and practitioners from the museums and heritage sector to identify and discuss some of the core questions faced in practice.

This free event on Wednesday 6th November comprises a series of brief presentations (in the form of an introduction to the theme followed by a response) on the broad topics of: ‘Types of value’; ‘Whose value?’ and ‘Assigning value’. This will be followed by the opportunity to discuss the implication of these for the development of more specific research networks with a view to identifying key issues of concern to develop into innovative research initiatives. Full details can be found on the project website (details of which are set out below).

Speakers include: Lisanne Gibson (University of Leicester); Andrew Newman (ICCHS, Newcastle University); Anna Goulding (ICCHS, Newcastle University); Tatiana Flessas (London School of Economics); Edwina Mileham (The Wallace Collection); Stacey Bains (Herbert Museum, Coventry); Vikki McCall (Stirling University); Tess Radcliffe (Wolverhampton Museums and Galleries); Serena Iervolino (University of Warwick) and Sarah Shalgosky (The Mead Gallery).

The roundtable discussion will take place at the University of Warwick on Wednesday 6th November 2013 at 10am-4.30pm. If you would like to attend this event (there is no charge to attend and there is even a complementary lunch!) please complete our online form to reserve a place so that we can make appropriate catering arrangements.

To establish a platform for the discussion at the event (and also to inform future collaborative research networks and projects) we have created a short questionnaire. This should only take about 5-10 minutes to complete. All contributions to this will be gratefully received whether or not you are able to attend this event! All responses to this will remain anonymous.
