We are pleased to announce the publication of Communities and Museums in the 21st Century: Shared Histories and Climate Action, jointly published by Routledge and ICOM, edited by Karen Brown, Alissandra Cummins and Ana S. González Rueda.
Set within the context of globalisation and decolonisation, this book reflects upon the role of museums in defining community identities. With a focus on regional museums in Latin America and the Caribbean, it brings together innovative, multidisciplinary perspectives on contemporary museology and participatory museum practice. It also demonstrates how the methodologies presented can be adapted to other communities who are facing the perils of climate change and unsustainable forms of development.
This is an Open Access book, freely and permanently available online, accessible through the Routledge website:
Hard copies can also be purchased via the same link.
