Research on Display

Research on Display: A Guide to Collaborative Exhibitions for Academics is an edited collection of essays on exhibition practicalities, as well as several case studies of past collaborative exhibitions by academics already working with museums.  This guide was produced following two Research on Display training workshops in 2014, which aimed to provide practical museum-based training for PhD students and Early Career Academics who had little or no experience working in the cultural sector.

Research on Display is available from this page as a free PDF download. It is intended for anyone who is considering collaborating with museums or cultural organisations, and aims to make the process of collaboration on interpreting and presenting academic research through museums easier and more accessible.
