Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

RESEARCH

Programme Development

Through my research and engagement with the Higher Education Academy I developed the first Preventive Conservation MA in the world. I had recognized the potential market through discussions with my networks in professional practice and identified an opportunity to enhance and support this important area of conservation practice that is equivalent to primary health care for museum collections. My CONSERVATION NOW research identified the enormous potential for the future growth of Preventive Conservation during which I gathered feedback from hundreds of stake-holders in order to identify areas of growth and decline in conservation practice that would help identify the skills and knowledge required by graduates entering professional practice. The outcomes were shared with colleagues within the university and around the world at the ICOM CC Triennial in Melbourne2014. Potential students were widely distributed around the world and due to the economic downturn and issues surrounding student fees many would be unable to afford the cost of re-location or able to give up employment so it was essential to develop a format that responded to these issues. Consequently the new programme was offered full/part time, on campus or distance with no requirement for synchronous learning since many students would be in different time zones around the world. This provided maximum flexibility as to when, where and at what pace a student learnt, which was particularly valuable to International students who did not have English as a first language’. In response to student feedback the online materials were also made available to the campus student and the classroom inverted/flipped in order to use contact time for problem solving through visits and workshops with an equivalent experience offered to the distance learner using virtual tours, discussion boards and blackboard collaborate. The model for the programme was developed by drawing upon the results of relevant researchandconstructively aligning the aims and objectives of each assignment to the learning outcomes for the module, which was developed from the approach pioneered by John Biggs. It is one of the most influential ideas in higher education and underpins the current requirements for program specification, declarations of Intended Learning Outcomes (ILOs) and assessment criteria, and the use of criterion based assessment.

Dee Stubbs, Preventive Conservator, New Brunswick Museum, Canada ‘The programme has been challenging but unbelievably rewarding. I want to thank Jean Brown for her pioneering work in developing the programme and its online delivery. Her inspired approach has enabled me to realize my dream of higher education and consequent employment in the cultural sector’

Charcoal Chiller

The charcoal chiller research is based on the principles of evaporative cooling. Evaporation draws latent energy from a material and as that energy is drawn from the surface it reduces the temperature within the material. If the material encloses an interior space it will produce a drop in temperature creating a chilled environment. The research project was developed in response to the rising cost of energy around the world and its potential impact on collections that need low temperature storage but it has cross-disciplinary applications including transporting vaccines to disaster areas and mobile refrigeration for outdoor recreation in hot climates. The charcoal chiller is an aluminium box covered with wet activated charcoal, which creates an extremely large surface area from which the water can evaporate. When placed in a hot dry environment the water evaporates and the interior of the chiller is cooled. The research investigated the impact of the depth of the charcoal on the evaporation rate and drop in temperature using the environmental laboratory, the University of Worcester. Further testing will be followed by publications in a range of cross-disciplinary research journals such as Conservation Studies and Geophysical Research Letters, an application to the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), discussions with none government organisations such as CARE International as well as product innovation and industrial design with l companies such as Rough Side. Future research will include an investigation into scaling up the size of the chiller.

Contemporary Arts

As the co-ordinator for the ICOM CC Education and Training Working Group I co-ordinated an International meeting in Maastricht to discuss the best way to develop the appropriate knowledge and skills for the conservation of contemporary art. My subsequent report facilitated the establishment of new contemporary art conservations programs around the world including one validated by the University of Amsterdam, which has just appointed Pip Laurenson from TATE as its first Professor. On a personal level the meeting enabled me to recognize the critical impact of legal frameworks on the care of contemporary arts and opened up a new avenue for my research. The presentation of my research at Glasgow University in 2014 and subsequent peer reviewed journal publication in 2016 contributed to my discipline and I was subsequently invited by the International Network for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (INCCA) to present my research into ‘Conservation and Performance Art’ at the Kunst Museum, Wolfsburg in July 2016.

CROSS-DISCIPLINARY IMMERSIVE LEARNING COLLABORATIONS WITH EXTERNAL PARTNERS

I have led in establishing a cross-disciplinary partnership between the University and the National Trust at Seaton Delaval. The partnership draws together teams of academics and students from a range of disciplines including multidisciplinary innovation, conservation, fine art, art history, architecture, engineering and design to work on real life projects at the National Trust property at Seaton Delaval. The nature of teams will be determined by the projects and will involve local community groups, schools, colleges, businesses and commercial enterprises in the region. It has already secured Heritage Lottery funding. It has started to change the perception of higher education from one that is inward looking, timetabled and exclusive to one that is outward looking, inclusive, flexible, dynamic and bedded in community engagement and supported by appropriate technology. This innovative project will facilitate authentic, cross-disciplinary, immersive learning on live projects that will deliver real impact in terms of capacity, empowerment and collaboration.

Professional Activity

The International Council of Museums (ICOM) is the largest International Organization of Museums and Museum Professionals and has over 300,000 members. It aims to promote the investigation, analysis and conservation of culturally and historically significant works and to further the goals of the conservation profession. ICOM-CC is the largest of the ICOM International Committees with over 2600 members worldwide from every branch of the museum and conservation profession. In 2009 I was elected to co-ordinate the ICOM CC Working Group for Education and Training, which I led for two triennia. In 2014 I was elected to join the Board of Directors of the ICOM CC in recognition of my sustained contribution to professional practice for over twenty years, in sharing my own research and facilitating dissemination opportunities for others, creating networks as well as taking a strategic role in identifying and leading on trends in conservation practice, which has also contributed to a shared body of working knowledge at Northumbria.

Professor Robyn Slogget, Director, The Conservation of Cultural Materials, University of Melbourne said ‘Jean’s ability to identify emerging trends in conservation practice and provide opportunities for them to be researched and discussed has been one of her strengths as the Co-Ordinator of the Working Group for Education & Training at ICOM CC.

As a Director I have a strategic global influence on practice and conservation education around the world most recently through my CONSERVATION NOW research that was discussed with colleagues at the ICOM CC Triennial in Melbourne in 2014. It identified the areas of growth and decline in practice as well as the knowledge and skills required by graduates to enter practice in the 21st century. This has had a direct impact on the conservation programmes around the world including New York University, the University of Delaware, the University of Amsterdam and the University of Melbourne.

Hannelore Roemich, Chairman & Professor Conservation Science, NYU wrote ‘Five instructors from conservation programmes in the US will meet to discuss where we are with our Preventive teaching and it would be a great introduction to show a few of your (CONSERVATION NOW) slides, which are VERY interesting, thanks so much for sending them along’

 As a Director I am advising on the publications indexing project that will ensure the maximum impact of future conservation research, contribute to research assessment exercises and impact on funding opportunities. Through my work for ICOM CC I have also led in developing greater inclusivity within the organisation for practitioners in developing countries who often lack the resources or confidence to engage in International meetings, conferences or journal publications. I lead a team of reviewers and technologists to co-ordinate papers from external authors in order to publish an e journal representing the work of practitioners in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The impact was immediate and has seen the establishment of social media networks and collaborative research projects.

Josefina Lopez from the National Museum of Chile wrote ‘I have already seen the benefits of this exchange of ideas and experiences. I’m certain that there will be a lot more’
