The Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA) houses an internationally renowned collection of wallpapers, textiles, designs, magazines, books, and ephemera from the 19th and 20th centuries.
We actively engage with students and staff across the University to explore exciting opportunities for collaboration and knowledge exchange.
In summer 2017, our curator, Dr Serena Dyer, worked with the Middlesex Employability Service to develop the Student Snapshots project. This was an opportunity for students to improve their communication skills and to creatively respond to objects in our collections through writing and presenting videos, which ranged from historical mini-documentaries to a spoof YouTube make-up video in response to a 1930s etiquette book.

We are always keen to explore new opportunities to do interesting things with interesting people, and actively promote our collections as a resource for students and researchers from all disciplines.
