How Collections End brings together scholars of museums and laboratories to look at the threat and reality of ending in a range of different kinds of scientific collections. In laboratories collections are in perpetual flux, and managed destruction is part of the job of the research scientist or lab technician. In museums endings can sometimes be intentional, but they can also be disastrous, or simply mundane, as the relevance of the collection dwindles or a museum closes its doors. Endings can be productive too: a matter of spring-cleaning, re-purposing, or the absorption of one collection into another. In How Collections End we will be discussing pre-circulated papers on specific case studies, asking questions about 'endings' and what they tell us about the power and value of scientific objects.

Papers will be pre-circulated to registered participants. Ticket price includes teas, coffees and lunches on 25 and 26 October. Event starts on 24 October 2017 at 2pm and finishes on 26 October 2017 at 1pm.
