Research Methodologies: Part one introduces generic research methodologies with part two considering subject specific material, analysis and evaluation techniques.
The Role of the Curator: The Role of the Curator considers the changing role of the curator and the ´politics´ of curating. It addresses developments in critical theory and their impact on curatorial practices and includes topics such as representing communities, ethnicities, gender issues, ´interventions´, gallery learning, the ´post-museum´ and curating in the public realm.
Collections and Collecting: This element of the course considers the nature of ollecting and the influence of collecting on curatorial practice. Collections as a ´ground´ for new projects with artists, makers and others as interpreting collections or making new work is included. Students can study private collectors, the transition of ´private´ to ´public´, and the process of defining objects as ´collectible´. It covers material culture, collecting the digital, oral history and its methods, research in archiving and management of historical and contemporary collections.
Reaching Audiences: The module allows students the opportunity to present or study a live project. Students study current discourse around engagement, particaption and learning in visual arts projects, and link this to exploring how curatorial practices reaches audiences.
Master´s Project: The Master´s Project is either text or practice based. It accommodates a variety of approaches for assessment. Examples might include (but are not restricted to) the traditional written dissertation, perhaps drawing on historical or archival case studies, research into and/or curating of an exhibition in a particular venue, and forms of digital production, such as the construction of a museum or gallery specific web site.
