About Us

Research into our collections and subject matter plays a  fundamental part in informing our public displays (galleries and exhibitions) and learning programmes.  The Museum has long-standing links to many of the key subject specialists in the relevant academic fields both in the UK and overseas, which have developed into formal partnerships in a number of instances, for instance on collaborative doctoral awards, developing academic conferences and seminars, co-writing or editing academic publications, delivering Masters’ programmes, and also in developing research projects.

Specific partnerships on conferences and seminars in recent years, often resulting in publications, have included: a long-standing partnership with the Institute of Historical Research, University of London; the Huntingdon Library in the US, which whom we developed several conferences and seminars; a Leverhulme-funded partnership with the University of Greenwich; the Royal Society, amongst others.
