Module details for 2016/17.

30 credits

FHEQ Level 6

Module Outline

This module gives students the opportunity to work with cultural organisations and/or communities outside of the university. Its structure will be different each year that it runs in order to respond to new projects presented by, or forged with, external groups. Indicative activities might include: creating a publication for distribution at a local venue, co-curating an exhibition, learning how to present research on museum collections in an engaging and accessible way, or creating new archives. Taking this module, students will be able to explore some of the practical applications of the skills that they have developed throughout their degree.

Module learning outcomes

Demonstrate the ability to communicate research in an accessible and engaging way for audiences outside of academia.

Critically evaluate what the module and related project is doing and what it might achieve in the light of other projects involving cultural organisations or communities.
