William is a registered Architect with over 20 years of professional experience following a double qualification in Architecture and Landscape Architecture. He specialises in Heritage Conservation and Project delivery. He has been a Director of Fulton Ross Team Architects since 2007, and has a long list of involvement with Heritage projects both prior to and after the Canterbury earthquakes.

Dr Jennie Morgan is a Lecturer in Heritage in the History and Politics Division at the University of Stirling in Scotland, and an Associate Member of the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage in Berlin. Jennie trained as a Social Anthropologist – first in New Zealand at the Universities of Canterbury and Auckland, and then in the UK gaining a PhD from the University of Manchester. Jennie has over 15 years research experience, including having worked on a number of interdisciplinary, international projects. Most recently, the ‘Profusion’ theme of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded ‘Heritage Futures’ project.
Her interests in the field of the critical heritage studies span the practice, theory and history of museums; collecting across heritage and museum contexts; heritage values; participatory approaches to heritage-making; and innovative research methods including creative knowledge-exchange, visual and multisensory ethnography. Motivated by her previous work as a museum curator, she is especially interested in changing ideas of what museums are (or what they could be in the future), and how these ideas are experienced and expressed through the everyday practice of professionals working in these institutions. Jennie has written about these topics in a range of peer-reviewed international journals (e.g., Museum & Society, International Journal of Heritage Studies, and Cultural Studies – Critical Methodologies) and books (e.g., Curatopia: Museums and the Futures of Curatorship, edited by Phillip Scorch and Conal McCarthy).
