New student volunteers for the interactive map

We are very lucky to have some new volunteers for the Antique Dealer project – 5 of our year 2 undergraduates at the University of Leeds have stepped forward to offer help on inputting data into the Interactive Map website for the project.

All of the students are taking the undergraduate module ‘The Art Market: Moments, Methodologies and Meanings’ as part of their BA (Hons) programmes in the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds – so they have specific expertise in the history of the art market!

It’s great to welcome Henry Dowson, Konstantinos Michailidis, Matlida Humphreys, Wing Li, and Araminta Martin to to the project – they will be adding new dealerships and locations into the interactive website, as well as editing existing locations and correcting incorrect locations of dealerships – so really, really important work!

Thank you to the extraordinary generosity of our UG students at Leeds…they join a growing band of volunteers on the AHRC Antique Dealers project!
