Synopsis: This monograph contains a selection of papers presented at the ICOM ICME 2011 Banz annual meeting on 'Dissolving boundaries, museological approaches to national, social and cultural issues'. The meeting was divided into six sessions: Challenging borders and boundaries; Objects and identity; Breaking out of the old and into the present; Telling stories; New means of communication, new ways for community involvement.
