This is a great blog post about being involved in the process of Research in Translation by Dr Irina Marin http://fearacrossborders.blogspot.co.uk/, the author of the ‘Book of Riots’ which is now on display in the School of Museum Studies. Irina describes her experiences of the project and getting to grips with “translating” her research in new ways, which has resulted in a fantastic display exploring how the “messiness” of riots is dissected, analysed and communicated to the public in much more simplistic ways, ultimately blaming particular groups for causing the riot. It is a challenging subject but Irina’s approach has helped retain the complexity of the historical situations whilst presenting them in an accessible, and striking, format.

You can come and see Irina’s Book of Riots, along with all the other brilliant displays, at the School of Museum Studies, the exhibition is on until early February next year.
