Museum Studies sets stage for global dialogue

The School of Museum Studies is celebrating its 50th anniversary with an event that examines the changing role of museums.

The School has organised a conference and a number of events. 

Head of the School, Dr Suzanne MacLeod, said: “Over the past fifty years the University of Leicester has become internationally known as a centre for leading-edge thinking and experimental practice in the field of museum studies. Today, the School of Museum Studies is a place for students and staff, researchers and practitioners from around the world to come together to think creatively and critically about museums, galleries and heritage; to explore and investigate, to experiment and create, to question and debate.”

The event takes place at Stamford Court at the University of Leicester from April 20-22
