Great presentation, thank you. Very interested in your structuring of typologies in your project; this sounds like a system that will be useful for so many of us in this area. I was interested in what you said about the expansion of these categories in future and wondered if you could say more about your next steps and future project plans? Thanks,

Bella

Hi Bella, thanks for your question. The typology is something Eric and I will be developing for a short book / online platform about interpretation. I'm particularly interested in the questions of sustainability that emerge when we consider exhibitions and interpretive experiences over a longer time frame, but also how the field as a whole is far more expansive than teaching and practice in 'interpretation' typically suggests. Coming at this from the perspective of heritage, I want to understand how artists, film-makers, poets, designers, architects etc. 'interpret' history, memory, culture in different ways and for different audiences. Exhibitions can act as a kaleidoscope bringing these different things together, but they always emerge from and feed back into a broader continuum of interpretive ecologies. It might be that we need a transdisciplinary Laboratory of Interpretation to begin to grapple with all these intersecting processes.
