During my time here at the RCC I have had the chance to write a small article for Buzz Magazine, The University of Birmingham’s very own magazine! I wrote for the recurring column “Campus Curiosities”, which highlights a different object from the collections in every edition. The column also gives information about how and where you can see the object (usually by making an appointment with the RCC team), giving people all across campus the opportunity to learn more about both that particular object, and about the collections.
Due to my Shakespeare interest, and as a tie-in with my research on the Tibor Reich Shakespeare textile, I wrote this edition’s Campus Curiosity about an 18th century portrait of Shakespeare, now on display at The Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon. You can read the column here, on page 14.
