This groundbreaking book is the first to provide a critical overview of the relationship between contemporary ceramics and curatorial practice in museum culture. Ceramic objects form a major part of museum collections, with connections to anthropology, archaeology and other disciplines that engage with the cultural and social history of humankind. In recent years museums have provided the impetus for cutting-edge artistic practice, either as a response to particular collections, or as part of exhibitions. But the question of how museums have staged contemporary ceramics and how ceramic artists respond to museum collections has not been the subject of published research to date. This book examines how ceramic artists have, over the last decade, begun to animate museum collections in new ways, and reflects on the impact that these new initiatives have had in the broad context of visual culture. Ceramics in the Expanded Field is the culmination of a three-year AHRC funded project, and reflects its major findings. It brings together leading international voices in the field of ceramics, research undertaken throughout the project and papers delivered at the concluding conference. By examining the benefits and constraints of interventions and the dialogue between ceramics and museological practice, this book will bring focus to an area of museology that has not yet been theorized, and will contribute to policy debates and art practice.

Faced with an adversary hellbent on her destruction, can Special Agent Dabria survive the onslaught, or will a well-orchestrated plot spell her demise? Driftwood Springs They see her as a monster. But she’s their only hope for seeing their kids again. Charlotte, North Carolina. Agent Donatella Dabria’s assumed identity preserves her secrets but paints a target on her back. So when a billionaire’s son is abducted from inside a gated community, her too-real undercover role quickly gets her fingered for the crime. And she’s forced to abandon all pretense when the young witness she was supposed to protect is the next victim pulled into the shadows. Hampered by an ineffectual police department, Donatella relentlessly pursues the truth in a neighborhood with more lies than residents. But when she barely survives a vicious attack at her home, she’s terrified she’ll be too late to prevent the kidnapped children from meeting a gruesome fate. Can she disarm a deadly scheme before everything blows up in her face? Hour of Reckoning A trail of traps. A timetable of death. Can she survive a sinister plot for revenge? Special Agent Donatella Dabria is always looking over her shoulder. Tormented by the peril her job has put her loved ones in, she’s constantly trying to anticipate the ruthless moves of her vindictive rival. So she has no doubt her old enemy is back for blood when taunting clues turn up in a vicious case of adultery turned fatal. Taking over from the inexperienced cop bungling the investigation, Donatella vows to stop the killer’s grisly promise of executing everybody close to her heart. But with the sadist intent on seeing her suffer, the determined fed battles a tragically growing body count… Can she endure a maze of murders designed to lead her to her end? Annihilation When two rivals enter a deadly maze, only one woman can survive. Donatella Dabria’s search never stops. Though it’s been years since she was orphaned into her aunt’s care, the FBI special agent won’t rest until she’s nailed the fiend responsible. And her time may have finally come when her brutal nemesis starts putting affairs in order for one final faceoff. Thrust into an intricate puzzle of her cunning enemy’s design, Donatella struggles to stay in the game from two steps behind. And with a powder keg of secrets and a mysterious organization looming in the shadows, finding an exit may turn out to be a shortcut to her own doom. Will Donatella’s fateful standoff backfire in an explosive battle of wits?

The Museums and Collections of Higher Education provides an analysis of the historic connections between materiality and higher education, developed through diverse examples of global practice. Outlining the different value propositions that museums and collections bring to higher education, the historic link between objects, evidence and academic knowledge is examined with reference to the origin point of both types of organisation. Museums and collections bring institutional reflection, cross-disciplinary bridges, digital extension options and participatory potential. Given the two primary sources of text and object, a singular source type predisposes a knowledge system to epistemic stasis, whereas mixed sources develop the potential for epistemic disruption and possible change. Museums and collections, therefore, are essential in the academies of higher learning. With the many challenges confronting humanity, it is argued that connecting intellect with social action for societal change through university museums should be a contemporary manifestation of the social contract of universities. Much has been written about museums and universities, but there is little about university museums and collections. This book will interest museum scholars and practitioners especially those unaware that university museums are at the forefront of museological creativity. It will also be of interest to academics and the growing number of leaders and managers in the modern university.
