AH 406 - Museum Studies: History, Politics, and Practices

(3.00 cr.)

Offers a critical introduction to museums, one of the most influential types of cultural institutions. Far more than repositories of objects, museums today are vital crucibles of discussion and debate about public values, memory, and identity. Participants survey the historical development of museums from the Renaissance to the present and consider challenges that currently confront museums.
