Richard Sandell

University of Leicester
Professor of Museum Studies

Richard Sandell is Professor in the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester where he teaches across the School’s Masters programmes, supervises doctoral students and works with colleagues in the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries on a range of projects. His research, frequently carried out in collaboration with museums, focuses on the potential that museums might play in supporting human rights, social justice and equality. He has been awarded fellowships at the Smithsonian Institution (2004/2005) and the Humanities Research Center of the Australian National University (2008) to develop projects around these themes.

He has published five books; the most recent (2012) (with Eithne Nightingale) is entitled Museums, Equality and Social Justice.  He is currently working with colleagues on a research project, funded by the Wellcome Trust and in collaboration with the Science Museum, London, Hunterian Museum and Royal College of Physicians, that interrogates the potential for medical collections and museums to offer new ways of seeing and understanding disability, and to inform contemporary debates about rights and equality.
