Shane Carmody & Constant Mews on 'The medieval imagination'

Shane Carmody, Director of Collections and Access at the State Library of Victoria, reflects on why The medieval imagination exhibition – which drew capacity audiences and was a free event – was so successful. He challenges notions of public value measured only in monetary terms.

Constant Mews, professor of history and director of the Centre for Studies in Religion and Theology at Monash University's School of Historical Studies, considers the celebration of history shared through The medieval imagination and its associated events.
