Kate’s AHRC funded Collaborative Doctoral Partnership with British Museum examines how temporary museum exhibition design practice at the British Museum emerged and adapted since the 1960s. By exploring the process behind the scenes and examining the intentions, activities, experiences and the impact of the “people who make” exhibitions this project hopes to reveal hidden and forgotten design histories. She uses ethnographic and oral history research methods supplemented by archival research. To provide a rich body of evidence that the museum sector and scholars will be able to use to understand how museum exhibition design practice has developed, evolved and its future trajectory in the UK.
