About the Programme

Recognised as a Collection of National Significance to Scotland, The Hunterian provides an inventive platform for postgraduate researchers to share their expert knowledge and to develop their skills through meaningful public engagement and knowledge exchange activities.

By proposing creative ways to present their ideas to the wider public, Hunterian Associates are able to broaden their perspectives on their own research-in-process, seeing the ways in which their topics connect to the collection strategies of past and present, as well as garnering immediate feedback through discussion and debate with a public audience. The Programme encourages Associates to plan their projects to complete by December following their start date.

Projects can take the form of gallery talks and tours, podcasts focusing on particular artefacts, web-based exhibitions, interpretive performance or installation, or any other form that engages with the public effectively. 

Through the programme, the cutting-edge research being carried out by postgraduates connects in exciting and unexpected ways with the University’s extensive collections.
