Museums and the Past: Constructing Historical Consciousness
Usually delivers within 2 weeks.
DescriptionMuseums and the Past explores the central role of museums as memory keepers and makers. Using case studies from a Canadian context, the contributors to this collection reflect on the challenges in maintaining and developing museums as meaningful places of memory and learning. Discussions of museum practice and historical consciousness - how our understanding of the past shapes our sense of the future - consider the modern museum's narratives and pedagogical responsibilities and how museums continue to inform our sense of history.
