U.S. Museum Histories and the Politics of Interpretation : Never Neutral, Paperback / softback Book

U.S. Museum Histories and the Politics of Interpretation : Never Neutral Paperback / softback

Edited by Laura (Associate Professor of Museum Studies at George Washington University, USA) Schiavo

Part of the Museum Meanings series

Paperback / softback


1. The book presents a range of case studies from the 18th to the 21st century and in so doing, demonstrates that museums have always been embedded in the politics and culture of their time. 2. Including contributions from historians, art historians, and anthropologists, the book is essential reading for students and scholars of museum studies, public history, cultural history, art history and memory. 3. The volume is the first to bring together key contributions that help to root U.S. museums within a broader context and reflect on their role as part of a larger set of political forces.
