International Museums and Collections Award - Birmingham blog

Sakina Nomanbhoy is currently completing her Honours in Art History at the University of Melbourne, and as the 2018 recipient of the IMaC Award has recently commenced her month-long placement at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom. Over the next month she will be working closely with collections staff on projects across their museums and cultural collections.

While on campus Sakina is also looking forward to spending some time in the UoB’s Cadbury Research Library pursuing further research for her thesis which investigates the links between Islamic and European art and culture in the first decades after the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople.

You can follow Sakina’s cultural adventure in Birmingham via her blog.

The IMaC Award provides a unique international exchange opportunity for students between the University of Melbourne and the University of Birmingham. Recipients of the Award take part in a placement working with the collections and museums of the partner university. The Award enables them to develop professional skills in collections management, enrich their studies and the opportunity to consider collections within an international context.
