Foundations of Museum Studies

Museum Studies [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Foundations of Museum Studies by Kiersten F. Latham,John E. Simmons Book Summary:

Museums serve to help us understand the past and navigate our future--as individuals, as societies, and as a global community. A careful and accurate assessment of a museum's purpose is crucial to its ability to serve its users effectively. "Foundations of Museum Studies: Evolving Systems of Knowledge" offers a holistic introduction to museums and the study of them from the perspective of specialization in museum studies within the context of library and information science (LIS). The book strikes a balance between theory and practice, examining museums from a systems perspective that considers museums to be document-centered institutions--that objects are documents that generate and convey information, meaning, and inspiration. The authors utilize examples drawn from their experience with institutions in the United States that can be applied to museums across the world. Future museum professionals who read this book will have a broader perspective, an expanded skill set, and the adaptability to span the spectrum of traditional academic disciplines.

A Museum Studies Approach to Heritage

Museum Studies [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Museum Studies Approach to Heritage by Sheila Watson,Amy Barnes,Katy Bunning Book Summary:

"Heritage's revival as a respected academic subject has, in part, resulted from an increased awareness and understanding of indigenous rights and non-Western philosophies and practices, and a growing respect for the intangible. Heritage has thus focused on management, tourism and the traditionally 'heritage-minded' disciplines, such as archaeology and geography, social and cultural theory. Scholarly work in this area has been in support of identity and community cohesion, as well as championing new approaches to ethics and values. Widening the scope of international heritage studies by drawing on a range of disciplines as well as the best from established sources, A Museum Studies Approach to Heritage explores heritage through new areas of knowledge including emotion and affect, the politics of dissent, migration and intercultural and participatory dimensions of heritage. It includes writing not typically recognised as 'heritage' but which, nevertheless, adds something significant to heritage debates: what heritage is, what it can do, how it works and for whom. The book includes heritage perspectives from beyond the professional sphere, serving as a reminder that heritage is not just the concern of the academic, but is a deeply felt and keenly valued public and private practice. This blending of traditional topics and emerging trends, established theory and concepts from other disciplines offers readers international views of the past and future of this growing field. A Museum Studies Approach to Heritage is an introductory reader for postgraduate students of heritage studies, museum studies and everyone interested in how we conceptualise and use the past"--
