Professor Sandra Kemp

Professor

Profile

I am Director of the Lancaster University’s Ruskin Library (an accredited Museum) and Research Centre for Culture, Landscape and the Environment, and Visiting Professor at Imperial College London.

I lead the international collaborative Universal Museums project, funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and LABEX, with co-investigator Hervé Inglebert, Professor of History at the University Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense. In partnership with the V&A, Science Museum, Musée de l’Homme, Musée du quai Branly and Musée des Arts et Métiers, this transnational project explores the role of museums in critical enquiry through collections, display and engagement with diverse publics, and in building knowledge across disciplines.

The Ruskin Library and Research Centre as a Museum of the Near Future

My aspiration is to continue to be a leading innovator in cross-disciplinary and public-facing research. It is my belief that as inherently dynamic institutions, constantly reinterpreting the past in light of the present, museums are important sites for the development and exchange of object-orientated interdisciplinary knowledge and expertise, re-imagining as well as re-interpreting our understanding of individual and collective identity, and of how we see the world.
