At the beginning of October I took on the challenge of doing a PhD. I am now a part time student of the University of Brighton, studying within the disciplines of museum studies and design history.
I will be researching the collecting practices of museums that have a material focus rather than a subject focus. Obviously my main case study will be MoDiP, its collections, use, and practices. There will be occasions when I use this blog to discuss and highlight aspects of my research.
After more than 10 years working in museums it is very strange to be a student again, even if it is only part time. I hope that it will be an enjoyable journey and that I can share it with readers of this blog.
Wish me luck!
