LOND 909 - Museums in Contemporary Society

Semester Offered: First Semester
Credits (Range): 4 Hours

This course examines museums as repositories of cultural and historical knowledge as well as institutions of social political power.  Readings will focus on issues such as the ownership of objects and their value, war and remembrance, history and cultural memory, racial and national identity, institutions and their communities, the poetics and politics of display, culture wars over scientific knowledge, and new trends in entertainment and tourism.  We will, of course, visit many museums.
