Nuala Morse is a Lecturer in Museum Studies at the University of Leicester, UK. Her research examines the ‘care work’ of culture professionals, ethics of care in the museum, and the wider social role of museums in landscapes of care provision. This includes exploring the links between cultural participation, health, well-being and recovery, with a particular focus on stroke, mental health and dementia. Another strand of research is focused on equitable museum careers, workforce development, and organisational change in the museum sector. She is the author of ‘The Museum as a Space of Social Care’ (2021).
