I’m invited to talk about ‘The Friendly Army’ at the ‘Museums in Context and Partnership’ conference at the National Railway Museum in York. The conference aims to examine the role of heritage institutions in urban regeneration, and how museums, galleries and higher education might work together for teaching and research purposes, and to develop displays, exhibitions and programmes. Bringing together experts from the heritage industry, from government and business partners, and academic practitioners, the conference will serve as a space for discussion of both the benefits and challenges of such initiatives, as well as an ideas exchange on best practice. The conference is part of the ‘Railway Cultures’ project, a collaboration between the University of Sheffield’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the National Railway Museum.
