Congratulations are in order for Professor Christine Gerrard of the Faculty of English, who has just been awarded a Humanities Teaching Award for her new lecture course entitled ‘Democratising the Classics: popular literature, consumer taste, and material objects in the eighteenth century’. A UEP Faculty Fellowship at the Ashmolean Museum allowed her to work with objects from the University’s collections, which were then digitised (in 2D and 3D) and uploaded with help from the Cabinet team. You can read more about the award here.
In addition to materials from Oxford, Prof Gerrard also drew upon digitised resources from the wider web and integrated them into her Cabinet resources. As these images in the public domain, the Cabinet pages in which they feature have been made publicly available here and here.
