Social History Curators Group Annual Conference 2017 – Call for Papers


‘Changing tides’
Reading Museum, Reading Town Hall
The University of Reading and The Museum of English Rural Life
29th and 30th June 2017

Call for contributions, papers, workshops, roundtable discussions and other presentations on the theme of:

Museums and Cultural Identity in a post-2016 landscape

Guidance on topics for discussion

2016 has been a monumental year for the world as a whole and the effects of its events on museums are likely to be wide-ranging in their consequences. The vote for Brexit and the moves to both the left and the right of the political spectrum across the world will all have a significant effect on visitors, museums and how we adapt to stay relevant in the future.

In a world where nationalism is noticeably rising, how is your museum adapting in order to stay relevant?

How are you as a museum professional helping your museum adapt to the changes? What is being done successfully that will give your organisation more resilience for the future in this new landscape? How do you think museums should think about the withdrawal of EU funding in deprived areas?

We’d like to know how you are responding to this unprecedented and unpredictable future for the sector, and share this with fellow delegates.
