Museums and Source Communities: A Routledge Reader

Museums and Source Communities: A Routledge Reader Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book brings together hitherto uncollected work on one of the most important developments in museology in the past century: collaborative research involving museums and members of ethnographic source communities, and the development of a new curatorial praxis which incorporates source community needs and perspectives. Using case studies of research projects as well as overview essays exploring the issues, common problems, and lessons of this type of research, this book will provide the first overview of work in this emerging field.

Synopsis:

This volume combines some of the most influential published research in this emerging field with newly commissioned essays on the issues, problems and lessons involved in collaborating museums and source communities.
