Museology and Public History
This course explores the history, practice, and diversities of museological endeavour from the emergence of the first museums and galleries during the Renaissance down to the present day. Through lectures, films, seminars, and field trips, we examine the core functions of museums (acquiring, preserving, studying, interpreting, and exhibiting collections for the public benefit) and we study critical debates and issues affecting museums, art galleries, historic sites, and heritage organizations.
