The team, led from UCL, and including CIs at Exeter and Linnaeus as well as Sharon at York (and including many other non university partners) have been awarded a large 4 year AHRC 'beacon' grant.

The overall grant is called 'Assembling Alternative Futures for Heritage' and it is intended to act as a 'beacon' for the 'Care for the Future' theme; and the York part-project is called 'Curating profusion'.

A postdoctoral researcher will be based in the Department and the University is due to contribute a PhD studentship starting in 2015.
