"This is an ambitious book, setting out as it does to explore the gamut of 'new' museum theory and practice. The essays in this book are diverse, but together they suggest virtually all of the recent major intellectual and political shifts within the museum world." (Museum Anthropology, Summer 2008) "This book is inspiring and ... offers an excellent vision of why and how the museum will matter more in the 21st century." (Muse)Vom Verlag:
"New Museum Theory and Practice" is an original collection of essays with a unique focus: the contested politics and ideologies of museum exhibition. This work: contains 12 original essays that contribute to the field while creating a collective whole for course use; discusses theory through vivid examples and historical overviews; offers guidance on how to put theory into practice; and, covers a range of museums around the world: from art to history, anthropology to music, as well as historic houses, cultural centres, virtual sites, and commercial displays that use the conventions of the museum. Authors come from the UK, Canada, the US, and Australia, and from a variety of fields that inform cultural studies.
