UCL Summer Courses

This summer the Centre for Museums, Heritage and Material Culture Studies
will be running a series of *Short Courses in Museum and Heritage Skills*
covering the following areas:

* Ethnographic Object Analysis * May 2011
Utilising collections at UCL, and with access to the British Museum and
the Horniman Museum, this training course sets out to develop the skills
and understanding necessary to analyse ethnographic collections from
Africa, the Americas and Oceania.

* Mount-Making for Museum Objects * 7 & 8 June 2011
The course introduces the process of making mounts using a variety of
object types (ethnographic, art, scientific, zoological, geological, etc).
This includes making mounts for stabilisation of objects in storage or
during transport and exhibition.

* Reading Objects: Curating and Researching Museum Collections * 20 & 21
June 2011
This course brings the latest approaches and thinking in material culture
studies to collections research and curation. Working with specific
collections at UCL, we explore issues of object biography, context and
production techniques and introduce methodological tools for conducting
collections-based research.

* An Introduction to Oral History for Museums and Cultural Heritage * 28 &
29 July 2011
The two day course provides an introduction to the uses of oral history in
museums and cultural heritage projects, addressing issues of research
design, ethics, interpretation and analysis, storage and dissemination.
