Understanding the History of Popular Culture and the Moving Image: the Dissemination of Research through a University Museum

Summary of the impact

Research by University of Exeter academics has increased the public's participation in, and appreciation of, the history and pre-history of cinema. Much of this has been achieved by collaborative projects with the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum, a free-entry museum located on the Exeter campus, which has a large collection (65,000 items) of international stature. A number of funded digitisation projects to improve accessibility have presented as well as preserved cultural heritage. The main impacts of this research have been to:

  • preserve, conserve, and present cultural heritage
  • engage different publics in literary and cultural heritage
  • contribute to economic prosperity via the creative sector
