Synopsis This volume is composed of six parts: Exploring identity and community; Communicating heritage and intangibility; Transformations; Participation and social justice; Developing new practices, and New voices and (re)interpretation. It presents sixteen essays which address innovative ways to present cultural heritage primarily in ethnographic and social history museums through recent permanent, temporary, and mobile exhibitions. The essays included in this book prompt critical debate about new ways of thinking and working in museums of different sizes, with regard for how we might work collaboratively towards a more equitable future. Essential political issues related to power and the strong influences of the museum are addressed in each section, especially with regards to the presentation of particular cultures and communities [Publisher's abstract].
Primary descriptors ethnographic museums or collections; social history museums or collections.
