Pubology: an enthnographic study into pubs and museum classification (awarded the Prize for Outstanding Creative Practice in Museum and Gallery Studies 2020)
This is my dissertation for MA Museum and Gallery Studies at Kingston School of Arts. This project consisted of six months of ethnographic research into pub materiality, aesthetics, attendees, communities, and experiences. I collected over 60GB of data on museums from soundscapes, to interviews, to photographic responses, old archive images, and more. I also conducted 6 hours of interviews and over 90 responses to a questionnaire. I recorded most of this into a Tumblr which looked at changing how we classify items in museum collections.
