Dr Kerry Wilson, ICC Head of Research

AHRC Leadership Fellow 2017-19

Kerry began her academic career in the field of library and information management, holding research posts at Leeds Metropolitan University (2001-03) and the University of Sheffield (2003-08). In this time she specialised in research on the social impact and organisational development of public library services, with funding from the museums libraries and archives council (MLA); British Council; Arts Council of Wales; and Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). She moved across to Liverpool in 2008 to take up a part-time lectureship on the MA Cultural Leadership programme at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) and ESRC-funded Research Fellowship with the University of Liverpool Management School. She has been with the Institute of Cultural Capital (ICC) since its inception in August 2010, providing academic leadership on behalf of LJMU.

Her main research interests as Head of Research at the ICC include  instrumental value and public policy; professional identity, ethics and values; and cross-sector collaborative practice. Since 2010 she has led a number of research projects on behalf of the institute, funded by the AHRC, North West Development Agency, Arts Council England and National Museums Liverpool, representing these key elements of contemporary cultural work. Her research in the field was recognised by the AHRC in 2017 with the award of a mid-career Leadership Fellowship.
