Dr Nuala Morse

Research Associate
University of Manchester / University College London
Participates in 3 items
Dr Nuala Morse is an interdisciplinary researcher with a background in cultural geography, museum studies, and participatory research and practice. Nuala’s research focuses on the practice of community engagement and politics of participation in culture and the arts, with a particular emphasis on museums. Her research is particularly interested in exploring the emotional and ‘felt’ qualities of engagement work, and the professional labour of ‘doing’ engagement work. She is currently a Research Associate at UCL/University of Manchester, investigating the links between museums programmes, health and wellbeing for a range of audiences, including mental health service users; people in addictions recovery; older adults living with dementia; and stroke rehabilitation patients.

Nuala recently completed a doctorate in the Department of Geography at Durham University which examined the cultures of participation in museums. She was then awarded an Endeavour Research Fellowship at the Institute for Culture and Society, University of Western Sydney, where she pursued these questions in an Australian museum context. Nuala’s current research explores the distinctive nature of the 'social work' of museum professionals; and the role of the museum as a space of social care.

What if we changed our views on heritage? And if heritage has already changed? While, on the global scene, states maintain their leading role in the mobilization of social and territorial histories, on the local scale, regions, neighbourhoods and parishes have changed. Citizens and communities too: they latch on to heritage to express an unprecedented range of belongings that no law seems to be able to take measures to contain, often to the discontent of...

Le patrimoine fait aujourd’hui l’objet d’attentions autant que d’agressions et de destructions. Cela peut s’expliquer par les difficultés de son identification ou de sa conservation. Cela peut plus profondément s’expliquer parce que, dès le départ, il célébre un événement ou conserve une mémoire qui peut être ou devenir une source de dissenssions et de conflits politiques. Enfin, sa reconnaissance suscite des gains économiques pour les uns mais des pertes pour les autres. Mais peut-être...
