Abstract

Drawing on scholar-practitioner precedents within museums, and collaborative research principles in museum anthropology, the Memory, Meaning-Making and Collections research initiative is offered as an example of public humanities research. Focus is placed on the dynamics between, and identities of, research participants from both the university and the public in order to interrogate how public humanities research engagements are conceptualized. Homi Bhabha’s third space is used to analyse Memory, Meaning-Making and Collections, and the third space’s capacity for disruptive enunciation encouraged as valuable – even necessary – within public humanities research.
