Museums and collections


This gallery-taught, discussion based, session will introduce students to ‘indigenous’ tribal communities in India and explore their complex relationship with Britain during the empire. Using handling objects students will question colonial collection practices and look into how modern day collecting has changed. This session links in well to issues of identity and empire.

Duration: 1.5 hours

Session Format: A museum teacher will lead the first 45 minutes of the session. Students will then have a chance to independently investigate the galleries and conduct their own object research.

Available: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Autumn Term 2017
