What ethics of land, place, belonging, and community shape the collection of objects and curation of exhibits? Join Dr Roxani Krystalli of the University of St Andrews as she speaks to Dr Sarah Laurenson, Principal Curator of Modern and Contemporary History at National Museums Scotland, and Adele Patrick, Co-Founder and Director, Creative Development, Leadership, and Engagement at Glasgow Women’s Library to discuss these fascinating questions. This event is made possible with support from the Scotland’s Future Series at the University of St Andrews.
