Leverhulme Human Constellations Showcase, Glasgow

The Leverhulme Trust Collections research group at the University of Glasgow invite you to attend the first annual public event of the Human Constellations project, showcasing developments in collaborations across our group’s research on collections and collecting practices.

Join us for our first annual public event with guest speaker Professor Hayden Lorimer (University of Glasgow) and his talk titled ‘Finders, Keepers’: Possession and the Nature of Collections.

There will also be talks from the current Collections PhD researchers on their work and collaborations, including:

  • Michelle McGachie on consent and collections of genetic data
  • Alicia Hughes on William Hunters anatomical drawings
  • Mona O’Brien on the social history of syphilis
  • Dominic Reed on Privacy and collecting sensitive information

The evening will end with a brief introduction to the four exciting new Collections PhD projects starting in October and concluding remarks before a wine and canapes reception.
