Abstract

In May 2017, a group of museum researchers and practitioners met to discuss the writing of Elee Kirk (1977–2016), whose pioneering doctoral study of young children visiting a natural history museum connects with our own work and practice in a number of different ways. Kirk [2015. “Budding Photographers: Young Children’s Digital Photography in a Museum.” In Museums and Visitor Photography: Redefining the Visitor Experience, edited by T. Stylianou-Lambert. MuseumsEtc] advocates for research that views children’s everyday museum visiting ‘beyond their potential for learning’ (p. 238). This paper offers edited transcripts of the discussion sparked by reading Kirk [2015. “Budding Photographers: Young Children’s Digital Photography in a Museum.” In Museums and Visitor Photography: Redefining the Visitor Experience, edited by T. Stylianou-Lambert. MuseumsEtc], documenting the conversation under a number of themes that emerged during the discussion, and reflecting on how each are picked up in more detail by the papers in this Special Issue.
