23rd -24th September are the dates for the next UMG conference. This year we are joining with University Museums in Scotland (UMIS) to hold a joint event at Durham University.
This year’s conference theme will be ‘Where Science and Society Meet’.
There is no doubt that the public appetite for science is growing.The interface between science and culture continues to shift and is a constant point of excitement, interest and debate. Arguably science cannot be presented in isolation but as an integral part of our culture, intersecting with the arts and humanities, with museums providing ideal spaces to demonstrate and communicate this.
University museums are pioneering ways to engage audiences in the science research of universities and this conference will explore how these developments are more than advancing the public understanding of science.
Full details of the conference programme and costs will be available soon.
