Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.

Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and Museums at Noon talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.

Video recordings of some MSP lectures are archived for viewing in our Media Gallery.

The Oxford University Museum of Natural History began a large redisplay project in April of this year, with the goal of developing and installing 20 new permanent exhibits in the main court of the Museum. I traveled to Oxford University for my UM Museum Studies practicum to digitize these new displays using structured light scanning technology to create interactive, 3-D models of the objects located within the new exhibits. This project aims to improve both public access to the OUMNH museum space and also begin a digital collection for researchers at Oxford University and beyond.
