Museum Studies: Intro

Museums are contested sites of representation. Consider the following questions: Who decides what is collected and displayed? Whose story is represented and how is it told? Who has access to the museum? Why do museums matter? This course tangles with the above questions as we critically discuss the history and role of museums. Subjects include collecting, architecture, display, education, access, and funding. Our discussions are shaped through museum visits, readings, videos and guest speakers. This course is a seminar; participation is required.
