Fiona Candlin (History of Art), Alex Poulovassilis and Andrea Ballatore (Geography) have been awarded £190,000 from the UKRI AHRC Rapid Response scheme to carry out research into risk, closure and resilience in the UK museum sector during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project seeks to understand how museums are behaving and what constitutes risk or resilience across the sector. The research team will be tracking the state of UK museums over the next 18 months, using information extracted from museums' websites and social media posts and developing new text analytics capabilities for analysing this information.
