‘Labelling Matters’–Marenka Thompson-Odlum (Pitt Rivers Museum)
‘This project examines historical labelling and language-use in the much-loved and criticised Pitt Rivers Museum, The ‘Labelling Matters’ project builds on inclusivity focused work being developed at the Pitt Rivers Museum and other ethnographic museums with the aim to
dissect and dismantle some of the complex contested words, stereotypes and concepts that are present not only in museums but in society at large.’
