In the first episode of ANUBhasha’s ‘Digital Repatriation in South Asia Series’, Steph and Chris chat with Dr. Adrian Plau, the Manuscript Collections Information Analyst at Wellcome Collection in London (UK). He is currently undertaking a Headley Fellowship with the Art Fund (UK).
Adrian talks to us about his own work transitioning from the traditional practices of textual scholarship in South Asian Studies from a university environment to the GLAM and collections space where he asks us to consider why and for whom we do our work.
