Participating speakers: Colleen M. Schmitz, PhD Emma Markiewicz

Museums conduct research. They are the guardians of manifold research objects and locations, where research results are publicly presented for discussion. In comparison to universities, its unique characteristic is the contact with visitors via the medium ‘exhibition’; thus presenting and communicating research to a wider audience.
This aspect needs to be considered when conducting research that is drawn from museum collections; at the same time, exhibiting without researching is impossible. What conclusions do museums draw from their self-image as an institution that conducts research but also conveys scientific expertise? In what way do research questions change if you view them from a museum perspective? What are the expectations of the public, politics and society towards museums, and how can museological science be sustainably financed?

Colleen M. Schmitz is the Curator and Head of the Exhibition Office at the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden. She is the publisher and author of numerous exhibition publications and has curated a plethora of national and international exhibitions.

Emma Markiewicz, PhD, is Head of Advice and Records Knowledge at The National Archives UK where she leads a team of collections specialists, providing advice and research services for a wide range of audiences on using the collections online and on site.
