I have some excellent news to impart…
First of all, I have been appointed as Research Associate in the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester (again). The job starts on 1st April for six months and I will be helping to update the Learning and Visitor Studies distance learning programme. I am absolutely delighted to be ‘going home’.
Secondly, I have been awarded a British Inter-university China Centre, Cultural Engagement Partnership postdoc (University of Bristol). I’ll be helping to document the British Library’s collection of Chinese communist propaganda posters for three months, from October 2015. Very exciting!
I am thrilled by both appointments and so relieved that I’ll be gainfully employed at least until the end of 2015!
