Last week our Master students presented their first research results from the field.
For the past couple of months, they have been conducting embedded intervention research at various institutions such as the Stedelijk Museum, The Jewish Museum, Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed and Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld & Geluid, addressing issues related to inclusivity, digitality and/or sustainability. The posters were a good way to encourage the students to structure their thoughts and preliminary findings and provided the opportunity for peer feedback on design and research.
As feedback from the sector is equally valuable, we invited three alumni of our former Master Museology programme to join this session. We were very happy to welcome again Christiane Lindner, currently Digital Catalyst at the Baden State Museum in Karlsruhe, Carla-Marinka Schorr, PhD candidate at the University of Wurzburg and Elena Melkumova, former Project Lead of Citymakers in Moscow. They provided very valuable comments.
All in all, it was a successful and inspiring session. The Master students will incorporate the feedback into their final research report, which they will submit in three weeks' time.
We are looking forward to having a new cohort completing our Master’s Applied Museum and Heritage Studies.
