Current Projects

Our research focus is on longitudinal analysis of the effects of public policy on the museum sector and how data can inform our understanding of the  historical development of museums in the UK.

Current projects include:

  • a Parliamentary history of UK museums
  • the impact of the recent period of 'austerity' on UK museums
  • trends in museum visit numbers since the early nineteenth century

Monographs on each of these subjects are planned for publication in 2020 and 2021.
