Art Gallery & Museum Studies MA

I have recently completed Semester 2 year 2 of the Art Gallery & Museum Studies MA at the University of Manchester, and am currently writing my dissertation. For my thesis I am undertaking an autoethnographic account of my interactions with digital objects, exploring their potential to initiate visceral reactions and meaningful connections. In particular, I will be investigating their digital material characteristics. Blog posts primarily contain reflection on such virtual encounters, but also discuss theory and how it impacts my ideas, progress and research design. Previous blog posts were written whilst on placement with the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, and also during the design of an online exhibition about the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on local communities in Manchester which was developed with a group of fellow students.
