Overview Partners Outputs
Back to Projects


This Fellowship aims to build on the existing strong partnership between the Global Exchange on Migration and Diversity and the Migration Museum Project with the aim of supporting museums, researchers and policy makers within their respective networks to increase community engagement and impact. Specifically, the Fellowship aims to embed migration research within attempts to improve museums’ migration outputs (connected to their collections, outreach, education work and programming). This fellowship will function by embedding the Migration Museum Project’s Head of Learning and Partnerships into the Global Exchange for six months. This will allow for:

  • Sustained partnership building between the respective networks through a series of events in Oxford and with partnering museums
  • Development of increased links between Oxford researchers from all disciplines with an interest in migration and UK museums – including to develop specific seed funding collaborations between specific researchers and museums
  • Increased access to research resources for the KE Fellow to support and improve the MMP offer – both for itself and for the development of the network; one of the organisation’s core strategic priorities
  • Support and guidance to facilitate the interface between research and museum professionals – including resource materials
