Collecting together a group of talented writers, Museum, Media, Message considers, in depth, the most up-to-date approaches to museum communication including: museums as media; museums and audience; and the evaluation of museums. Addressing the need for museums to develop better knowledge of visitor experience, this volume introduces a broad range of issues, and presents the ultimate how, why and who of museum communication. Museum, Media, Message combines philosophical discussion, practical examples and case studies and examines museum communication in three sections: analyzing how museums and galleries construct and transmit complex systems of value through processes of collection and exhibition raising philosophical and management issues and exploration of work with specific audiences introducing methods for studying the audiences' experiences of communication events in museums. Perfect for people who want to develop a more critical and informed professional museum practice, and for students looking to enhance their skills of analysis and reflection, this book is of value to anyone interested in the current debates and issues of this new and growing field.

Although erotica has always existed, "pornography" is a recent phenomenon: as late as the eighteenth century the word did not exist. From the secret museums to the pornography trials of Madame Bovary and Lady Chatterly's Lover, to Mapplethorpe, cable TV, and the Internet, Walter Kendrick explores how conceptions of pornography relate to issues of freedom of expression and censorship. He provides, too, a fascinating portrait gallery of the jurists, artists, guardians of public morality, sleaze merchants, and civil libertarians who have played roles in the changing definitions of pornography.

A deep and luminous story of late love and second chances - an enduring novel of ideas about life, love and the surprises it throws at us. 'Full of grace and humanity' Sunday Times 'Intriguing, tender, unexpectedly moving' Woman and Home ‘A beautiful, affecting novel of late love, by an extraordinary new writer’ NINA STIBBE 'Warm-hearted, clear-minded, and unexpectedly spellbinding, Meet Me at the Museum is a novel to savour' ANNIE BARROWS, co-author of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society 'A quirky, wise and tender novel. Proof that the richest fruits come on the edge of autumn' SARAH DUNANT 'Quietly intriguing, beautifully observed, full of powerful emotions' RUTH HOGAN, author of The Keeper of Lost Things ‘Tender, wise and moving, Meet Me at the Museum is a novel to cherish.’ JOHN BOYNE ***************************************** Sometimes it takes a stranger to really know who you are When Tina Hopgood writes a letter of regret to a man she has never met, she doesn’t expect a reply. When Anders Larsen, a lonely museum curator, answers it, nor does he. They’re both searching for something, they just don’t know it yet. Anders has lost his wife, along with his hopes and dreams for the future. Tina is trapped in a marriage she doesn’t remember choosing. Slowly their correspondence blossoms as they bare their souls to each other with stories of joy, anguish and discovery. But then Tina’s letters suddenly cease, and Anders is thrown into despair. Can their unexpected friendship survive? ***************************** The Observer Promising first-time British novelists 2018: 'A novel about self-discovery and second chances' 'I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone looking for a book that makes you think and wonder and quietly hope. I loved it' TAMMY COHEN 'Insightful, emotionally acute and absorbing' Daily Express ‘A correspondence that begins with a search for clarity becomes something much deeper and richer - both for the two main characters, and for the reader. Anne Youngson peels away the layers that prevent us from living the lives we ought to be leading, and her book is both tender and absorbing.’ LISSA EVANS, author of Their Finest Hour and a Half 'Meet Me at the Museum starts so quiet and small like a bud tightly closed against the winter then it unfurls into something so alive and truly beautiful. I was immensely moved by it' TOR UDALL, author of A Thousand Paper Birds 'Precise, clear, funny, poignant and truthful. This is a work of art, dear readers. Revel in its beauty' ADRIANA TRIGIANI ‘A moving tribute to friendship and love, to the courage of the ordinary, and to starting again’ RACHEL JOYCE 'The loveliest short novel of late love you'll ever read. Whenever I talk about it, I simply cry with joy' JAMES HAWES
