Museological Review (MR) is a peer-reviewed journal, published annually by the PhD cohort of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester, UK.
The theme of Museological Review Issue 25 is ‘(Re)visiting Museums’. As museums around the world reopen their doors to visitors after the closures imposed by the spread of the pandemic, Museological Review Issue 25 invite submissions that reflect upon the alternative paths that opened up through the practical and theoretical challenges faced by museums in 2020. Now that museums are reopening, this is a great chance to revisit them with fresh eyes and consider how the museum sector is responding to worldwide events and navigating new ways to reach the audiences and negotiate relevance, even from a distance through times of crisis.
We are now inviting Museum Studies scholars to engage with us as peer reviewers for Issue 25.
We are seeking scholars who received their PhD in Museum Studies or Cultural Heritage related topics, ideally within the last two years, or who have already submitted their thesis to serve as peer reviewers.
Application Deadline: 8th January 2021
