You still have another two weeks left to register for what seems to become a very exciting conference on museological issues at the Manchester Museum, viz., “Nature behind glass: historical and theoretical perspectives on natural science collections”, Thursday 6th – Saturday 8th September 2007.
This international symposium aims to promote and communicate inter-disciplinary research on historical, theoretical and museological aspects of natural history museums. Bringing together a critical mass of scholarship engaged in research in this area, the conference will develop a theoretical community concerned with ‘natural museology’. Papers provide innovative methodological or reflexive insights and are based on original research.
