Research and resources

The second session of the Citizen Curators programme was about discovering resources for research and how to use them. We met in the grand Council chamber in Falmouth. Tehmina Goskar reminded us about using open questions when researching our chosen topic.  We discussed how biased some information we discover might be,  even though people trust museums. The content may relate to the power of those contributing to the museum.

There are many resources to use for research but it’s important to use these with a critical eye.

Although at this stage I want to find out more about the health and wellbeing of the people who came from all parts of the world to learn about telegraphy in Porthcurno, I am also interested in the changing diversity in tourists who visit the area.  Porthcurno was multicultural when it was a college. Then the area became mono-cultural until in the past few years, visitors have changed and the area has become multicultural once more during the holiday times.
