We are pleased to announce the publication of the book Babel Tower: museums people in dialogue
by ICOFOM /ICOM.
The book is the result of the webinars organized in 2020, during the pandemic, at the University of Liège. We counted on the intense collaboration of the students in Museology, whom we warmly thank.
"Time for dialogue, time for finding common ground. A Babelian tale of museology has already been analysed by theorists and historians of this cross-cultural discipline1. Nonetheless, few agreements have been made on specific terms, methods and basic scientific parameters for the field of museum theory and practice up until the present. This book and the round of debates entitled Babel Tower: Museum people in dialogue, organised by the Université de Liège (Belgium) in collaboration with the University of Catania, with participation from the Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias (Portugal), has brought together different voices and approaches to the museum, exposing such a museological Babel."
