Cultures of Curating: Curatorial Practices and the Production of Meaning

Conference: Cultures of Curating  Conferences12 July 2012 13 July 2012 University of Lincoln
Cultures of Curating Poster
Cultures of Curating: Curatorial Practices and the Production of Meaning c. 1650-2000
We seek submissions which investigate any aspect of the developing work of the curator, from creating an acquisitions policy, to labelling and documentation, to publicity work, as we wish to explore curating as both craft and profession. We also invite contributors to consider how curatorial practices constituted the museum object, and attempted to produce or suppress certain meanings for museum objects; and how such practices formed particular relationships between curators and other museum figures such as donors and visitors. We are interested in submissions which consider a wide variety of periods and places, and all types of curating, from fine art to science.

Keynote speakers confirmed to date:
  • Dr Sam Alberti, Director, Hunterian Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons
  • Dr Jonathan King, British Museum
