  15. Lecture 10: Part 1: Heritage and well-being: the use of museum objects in hospitals. Part 2: Tangible objects: understanding through touch 18 items
    The first part of the final session will discuss the use of all our senses in exploring objects, particularly our sense of touch. It will question the old ‘do not touch’ rule which still persists in many museums. The second part of the session will explore the use of 3D imaging and digital documentation in providing access to objects. The second part will discuss how ‘use of collections’ may be influenced by many factors ranging from political (e.g. the current drive for increased public access) to practical (e.g. available display space). The session focuses on UCL’s collections and explores the history and use of the material culture collection (which will be the base for the practical project attached to this course). It also explores an innovative research project which involves taking objects into hospitals and attempting to measure possible effects on the well-being of the patients who handle and discuss the objects.
