ANTH 460OC - Museum Anthropology

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
This course provides an overview of the history, politics and changing roles of anthropological collections housed in museums. In the current era, objects are mediating new relationships between museums, object source communities, and diverse audiences. We will draw on published literature and current initiatives involving Oberlin’s own anthropological collections to explore related themes including co-curation; indigenous “maker movements” and knowledge repatriation; physical repatriation and the law; and digital approaches to democratizing access to physical collections. This course is part of the MINING the MUSEUM StudiOC Learning Community.
Does this course require off campus field trips? Yes
