Selling Museums

Tuesday 20 February 2018, 5.30PM18:45

Speaker(s): Jamie Larkin

There is a long history of commercial activity at museums and heritage sites. Despite this, little attention has been paid to the phenomenon, particularly how such activities may influence the public perception of culture. This talk will explore some ways of grappling with these issues, and offer reflection on whether commerce in the context of the museum should be resisted or embraced.

Join us in Kings Manor for a drink from 17:15, or watch live on the University of York Department of Archaeology Facebook page from 17:30.
