New Course beginning in 2019: 

ANTH 492:10 - ST:  Museums:  Culture and Heritage on Display, with Dr. Meghann Jack

This course explores the complex and contested world of museums. Approaching the museum from a critical perspective, students will examine how the museum, as both representational and public space, continues to evolve in meaning, reach, method, and purpose. Students will engage with a diversity of museum contexts and sites, across differing regions and cultures, with a particular emphasis on ethnographic and social history museums. The course will consider such key themes as: the origins and idea of the museum; objects, collections, and collecting; memory; the poetics and politics of museum display; museums and their publics; and the challenges of exhibiting cultures.

Class will take place in E6 block
