Event description
Nick Merriman, CEO of Horniman Museum and Gardens, will give the Centre for Critical Heritage Studies Annual Public Annual lecture for 2019

About this Event

The topic will revolve around how critical museology has been dominated by a largely human-centred mode of enquiry since it emerged 35 years ago. With a few notable exceptions, until recently little attention has been focused on what is now being termed the climate and ecological emergency. He will discuss ways in which critical approaches to this phenomenon can both illuminate museology as a subject and influence practice in museums.

All welcome. The event will be followed by a drinks reception.

Please note that there may be photography and/or audio recording at the event and that booking is essential. Please follow this FAQ link for more information.

CCHS operates as an inter-faculty research centre led by the UCL Institute of Archaeology and supported by the Institute of Advanced Studies, in partnership with the University of Gothenburg. It will lead the way in defining a new field of critical heritage studies which identifies and interprets evolving, multi-scalar forms of heritage and identity, and addresses issues of heritage justice.
