All Museology staff supervise research students and welcome enquiries from prospective students in their respective research areas.
Research and teaching in the Centre for Museology are supported by rich resources within the University, in the collections of the University of Manchester Library with its unique Special Collections housed in the refurbished Deansgate building, the Manchester Museum and the Whitworth Art Gallery , as well as in other distinguished Manchester archives and collections. Our research students also work on collections and institutions, past and present, beyond Manchester - in the UK and overseas.
