Hidden Histories of Exploration: Exhibiting Geographical Collections
RGS-IBG - Lowri Jones (September 2006 start; Royal Holloway, University of London; PI Professor Felix Driver)
An earlier RGS-IBG CDA, Lowri Jones (Royal Holloway, University of London) was started in 2006 and completed in 2010 (within the specified four years).
Her dissertation served as the foundation of a major exhibition highlighting the role of local inhabitants and indigenous intermediaries in histories of exploration (RGS-IBG, 15 October to 10 December 2009), supported by an AHRC Museums, Galleries and Libraries Award to PI Professor Felix Driver (Royal Holloway, University of London). Dr Jones is now a Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham.
