Elee Kirk

Children, Nature, Museums



Elee KirkIt is with very great sadness that I have to announce the death from cancer of Elee Kirk on 1st August 2016. I know that she will be missed not only by friends and family, but also by many colleagues in the world of museum education.

We are hoping that Elee’s legacy will continue. Before her death, Elee was already working on plans for developing her thesis, Crystal Teeth and Skeleton Eggs (download link here), into a book-length work. It is our hope that we will be able to continue with this.

In due course, this site may change into an archive of some of Elee’s research materials, so that after her death we may be able to continue with doing what she most wanted: to benefit other researchers, museum practitioners and ultimately museum visitors through her work.
