10th-11th March, 2011

The nineteenth and early twentieth centuries saw the formation of major museum collections of stained glass all over Europe and North America. New displays of stained glass have recently been unveiled at the V&A, at the Schnütgen Museum in Cologne, and the Yorkshire Museum in York, exemplifying the issues associated with the conservation and display of this challenging medium, while the inventory project at the Burrell Collection highlights the research challenges of these truly international collections.

In the historic surroundings of the medieval Merchant Taylors’ Hall in the centre of York, an international panel of speakers from Britain, Germany and Switzerland will explore this exciting subject at the interface of museology, art history and conservation.

Confirmed speakers include: Dr Dagmar Taübe, the Schnütgen Museum, Cologne; Dr Detlef Zinke, the Augustinermuseum, Freiburg im Breisgau; Dr Stephan Trumpler, Vitromusee, Romont;  Dr Glyn Davies, V&A, London; Dr Vivien Hamilton, the Burrell Collection Glasgow; Susan Harrison, English Heritage; and Andrew Morrison, Yorkshire Museum.

The cost of £100 covers the two-day programme, inclusive of tea/coffee and a buffet lunch on both days. To sceure your place, please fill out the form on the flier below and return no later than 28th February 2011.
