Abstract

Science at the Seaside is a collaboration between Ilfracombe Museum, Bath Spa University and the University of Exeter, which proposes a new and original understanding of the interlinked growth of popular science and coastal tourism during the Victorian period, with the different outputs producing original insights into the Victorian fascination with natural history. This multi-component output Collection provides evidence of a co-authored chapter, a co-curated permanent exhibition with a written guide, workshops, an educational activities programme, and the digitization of c.2000 museum objects, which derive from research undertaken as part of a North Devon FLAG-funded project, ‘Science at the Seaside: Pleasure Hunts in Victorian Devon’ (October 2013-August 2015). Contextualising information includes a 300 word statement, Research Timeline and Research Questions, and documentation of research dissemination through conference papers and public talks.
