Assembling Nuclear Cultural Heritage: the practices of collection

This workshop explores the practice of collecting nuclear cultural heritage, because collecting forms the core institutional identity of the heritage and museum sector. First, collecting nuclear cultural heritage faces obstacles related to secrecy and security. How these are negotiated in different contexts? Second, collecting requires creative assessment of potentially new cultural resources and values. Participants will present and examine different institutional and national cases, focusing on collecting as the active management of donor and recipient relationships, including the nuclear industry, cultural heritage professionals and local communities.
