2. Academic Fellow in Critical Studies in Museums, Galleries and Heritage; University of Leeds, UK

The University of Leeds is offering an interesting opportunity for an academic pushing the boundaries in heritage and museums in a REF-able way:

“The precepts of conventional western ideas of heritage are being questioned by the increasing challenges of globalisation and environmental issues while at the same time heritage and museums are being used as a resource for addressing these challenges. ”

“Acting as catalyst for collaboration across the University, in particular via the strategic theme of ‘Culture’, in partnership with the Centre for Critical Studies in Museums, Galleries and Heritage, you will organise seminars, network nationally and internationally at conferences and build local collaborations. You will also co-supervise PhD’s and work on and further develop the Masters in Art Gallery and Museum Studies and the Masters in Arts Management with Heritage Studies.”
