Research Themes

The major research themes of RCMG include:

  • learning processes and learning outcomes in museums, galleries and related cultural organisations
  • museum engagement with social justice (particularly in relation to human rights, disability equality, LGBT issues and so on)
  • organisational and sectoral change
  • new approaches to developing ethical thinking and practice
  • public engagement with contemporary social issues, in particular, through collections, exhibitions and displays
  • visitor experience and interpretive design

Research themes are closely linked to the interests of RCMG Research teams. We have carried out a range of research projects which explore these themes and you can access our publications for free.
