LOND 934 - Museums and the Shaping of Knowledge

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 6 Hours
Attribute: 6SS

Every museum is a narrative, every visit to a museum a chance to explore the ways that narrative shapes and reflects how we think about the past and the present, underlying ideologies that represent or challenge dominant thought, and assumptions about how we learn. This course is intended for students interested in the myriad ways we look at and conserve the past via the organization of material culture and what that reflects about contemporary thought and social and political practice. London is a city of museums, and the class will visit a number of museums each week and will meet with curators, education and outreach directors, and academics involved in museum studies.
Instructor: S. Volk
