The Thing about Museums Objects and Experience, Representation and Contestation

I’m delighted to confirm that The Thing About Museums – the first volume of collected papers from the Material Worlds conference hosted in Leicester in December 2008 – is now in print. As well as co-editing the volume with Sandra Dudley, Jen Binnie, Julia Petrov and Jenny Walklate, I’ve contributed a chapter ‘Displaying the Communist Other: perspectives on the exhibition and interpretation of communist visual culture’. Also included is the transcript of Jenny and myself’s interview with Sue Pearce.

Currently available in hardback, the volume retails at a RRP of £75.00, though I note that Amazon is already offering a £3.75 discount!
