Literally celebrating a new chapter

My article entitled: ‘The Animals went in two by two’ (pp. 184-197) in ‘Museum Storage and Meaning: Tales from the Crypt’ (Routledge Research in Museum Studies) is now published! This and starting a new job earlier in the month mean it has certainly been a busy few weeks.

It’s always nice to get hold of an actual copy, and mine arrived this morning. Here’s a photo of Mr. heirloom modelling it. 

Museum Storage and Meaning is available to purchase around the world, both from Routledge and from third party sellers, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble (US) and Blackwells (UK). It is available in Hardback (978-1-138-06597-0), and eBook formats (various ISBNs). The eBook is available from the Amazon Kindle Store, Apple iBook Store and from our partner eBook provider, VitalSource.

After the Flood: Calderdale Museums

I’ve recently moved into a new job at Hebden Bridge Town Hall, and so I thought I’d make a little post on the last exhibition (for now!) that I curated for Calderdale Museums.

The exhibition featured a series of photographs by Mike Bentley who has documented the demolition and rebuilding of Elland Bridge following the devastation of the Boxing Day floods, 2015. It is on until 11th November, so there’s still plenty of time to catch it!
