Museums, refugees and communities, Domenico Sergi  - cota : M/18-BC;

ISBN 9780367763411

170 Pages 24 B/W Illustrations

Published January 9, 2023 by Routledge

Museums, Refugees and Communities explores the ways in which museums in Germany, The Netherlands and the UK have responded to the complexities and ethical dilemmas involved in discussing the reasons for, and issues surrounding, contemporary refugee displacements.

Building upon an ethnographic study carried out in the UK with refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the book explores how object-led approaches can inspire new ways of thinking about and analysing refugees’ experiences and European museums’ work with their communities. Enlarging the developing body of research on museums’ increasing engagement with human rights and focusing in particular on the social, cultural and practical dimensions of community engagement practices with refugees, the book also aims to inform growing debates on museums as sites of activism.

Museums, Refugees and Communities offers an innovative and interdisciplinary examination of museum work with and about refugees. As such, it should appeal to researchers, academics and students engaged in the study of museums, heritage, migration, ethics, community engagement, culture, sociology and anthropology.

 

Museums, sexuality and gender activism, By Joshua Adair, Amy K. Levin - cota : M/56-BC;

ISBN 9780367195106

324 Pages 20 B/W Illustrations

Published February 5, 2020 by Routledge

Museums, Sexuality, and Gender Activism examines the role of exhibitionary institutions in representing LGBTQ+ people, cisgender women, and nonbinary individuals. Considering recent gender and sexuality-related developments through a critical lens, the volume contributes significantly to the growing body of activist writing on this topic.

Building on Gender, Sexuality and Museums and featuring work from established voices, as well as newcomers, this volume offers risky and exciting articles from around the world. Chapters cover diverse topics, including transgender representation, erasure, and activism; two-spirit people, indigeneity, and museums; third genders; gender and sexuality in heritage sites and historic homes; temporary exhibitions on gender and sexuality; museum representations of HIV/AIDS; interventions to increase queer visibility and inclusion in galleries; LGBTQ+ staff alliances; and museums, gender ambiguity, and the disruption of binaries. Several chapters focus on areas outside the US and Europe, while others explore central topics through the perspectives of racial and ethnic minorities.

Containing contributions that engage in sustained critique of current policies, theory, and practice, Museums, Sexuality, and Gender Activism is essential reading for those studying museums, women and gender, sexuality, culture, history, heritage, art, media, and anthropology. The book will also spark interest among museum practitioners, public archivists, and scholars researching related topics.

Nueva museologia y museología social, Óscar Navajas Corral - cota : M/59-BC;

ISBN: 978–84-18105–06‑7

Año: 2020

En nuestra sociedad los museos son instituciones que almacenan, conservan y gestionan una herencia patrimonial, pero también son referentes para el desarrollo potencial (social, cultural y económico) de su entorno más inmediato. Para llegar a esto los museos a lo largo de la historia han ido sufriendo numerosas transformaciones; las más importantes acaecieron en los años sesenta y setenta del siglo xx, donde aparecieron voces que revolucionaron el sentido y la razón de ser de estas instituciones, otorgando mayor protagonismo al ser humano que a los bienes que en ellas se custodiaba. Esta corriente de pensamiento sería conocida como nueva museología, y en la actualidad como museología social.

Este libro pretende ser, por un lado, un reflejo de aquellos posos que generaron una museología (social) diferente a la museología denominada tradicional. Por otro lado, presenta el panorama de la nueva museología en España. Analiza la evolución de una nueva museología y una museología social en España, el momento en el que los planteamientos de aquella, la nueva museología, se introdujeron en sus fronteras, quiénes fueron sus protagonistas y cuáles las experiencias pioneras. Asimismo, este trabajo no se limita a construir el pasado, la intención ha sido indagar si continúa existiendo una nueva museología en España, en qué estado se encuentra, cuáles son sus propuestas, sus metodologías y características, y cuál es su futuro.
El lector podrá comprobar la riqueza de experiencias de una museología (social) apenas conocida, donde se plantean nuevos métodos para la participación comunitaria, imprescindibles para entender y defender la utopía que profesaban numerosos de los profesionales de la nueva museología. Lugares que se proyectan como reflexión y «negociación» entre el pasado y el futuro. Espacios de expresión para sus habitantes, de ambición política —en su sentido aristotélico—, convertidos en formas para desarrollar dinámicas de participación social y en recursos para el desarrollo local endógeno.

Progressive museum practice, George E Hein - cota : M/61-BC;

ISBN 9781598744811

255 Pages

Published July 15, 2012 by Routledge

Preeminent museum education theorist George E. Hein explores the work, philosophy, and impact of educational reformer John Dewey and his importance for museums. Hein traces current practice in museum education to Dewey's early 20th-century ideas about education, democracy, and progress toward improving society, and in so doing provides a rare history of museum education as a profession. Giving special attention to the progressive individuals and institutions who followed Dewey in developing the foundations for the experiential learning that is considered best practice today, Hein demonstrates a parallel between contemporary theories about education and socio-political progress and, specifically, the significance of museums for sustaining and advancing a democratic society.

 

Reflexiones sobre museologia crítica fuera y dentro de los museos, Jesús Pedro Lorente - cota : M/72-BC;

ISBN: 978–84-18932–97‑7

Año: 2022

Este libro ofrece una revisión histórica sobre la museología crítica dentro de los museos, pero también analiza su labor curatorial exportada a espacios públicos ante sus puertas, su impacto en los estudios museológicos desarrollados en las universidades, y su proyección al más amplio campo disciplinar de la «patrimoniología». En esos tres sentidos sitúa también el punto de mira fuera de las instituciones museísticas, aunque su principal foco de atención se centre en rastrear la influencia de los discursos críticos en la interpretación de las colecciones permanentes. Esa amplia panorámica se basa en numerosos ejemplos localizados en museos y publicaciones museológicas, representativos de muy diferentes geografías culturales o campos del saber. El resultado no se reivindica como un gran relato omnicomprensivo, sino como un ensayo subjetivo donde se resumen las ideas de un historiador y crítico de arte que lleva muchos años reflexionando y escribiendo sobre museología crítica.

 

La gestión y organización de los museos en España y Portugal, Luz María Gilabert González - cota : M/80-BC;

Páginas: 268

Año: 2023

ISBN: 978–84-19525–15‑4

Las grandes transformaciones producidas a partir de la década de los ochenta del siglo XX en el sector de la cultura han llevado a que el panorama museológico de los países del sur de Europa presenten en la actualidad una gran complejidad, especialmente en los modelos de organización de sus entidades. La principal causa se debe a la influencia del mundo del mercado y de la economía, provocando la inclusión de mecanismos de gestión procedentes de las empresas y convirtiendo a los museos en auténticos productos culturales. España y Portugal han sido dos de las naciones más afectadas por estos cambios una vez que se instaura en ellas la democracia. Con esa base histórica, la intención del estudio ha sido ofrecer una síntesis general que permita la comprensión del fenómeno museológico contemporáneo y de los episodios, causas y acontecimientos más relevantes para su gestación como una de las instituciones centrales de la cultura posmoderna. La estructura del ensayo divide los contenidos en cinco bloques temáticos: historia (capítulos I y II), economía (capítulos III y IV), política (capítulos V y VI), globalización (capítulo VII) y práctica museológica (capítulo VIII).

 

Museum activism, Edited By Robert R. Janes, Richard Sandell - cota : M/99-BC;

ISBN 9780815369974

436 Pages

Published January 18, 2019 by Routledge

Only a decade ago, the notion that museums, galleries and heritage organisations might engage in activist practice, with explicit intent to act upon inequalities, injustices and environmental crises, was met with scepticism and often derision. Seeking to purposefully bring about social change was viewed by many within and beyond the museum community as inappropriately political and antithetical to fundamental professional values. Today, although the idea remains controversial, the way we think about the roles and responsibilities of museums as knowledge based, social institutions is changing. Museum Activism examines the increasing significance of this activist trend in thinking and practice.

At this crucial time in the evolution of museum thinking and practice, this ground-breaking volume brings together more than fifty contributors working across six continents to explore, analyse and critically reflect upon the museum’s relationship to activism. Including contributions from practitioners, artists, activists and researchers, this wide-ranging examination of new and divergent expressions of the inherent power of museums as forces for good, and as activists in civil society, aims to encourage further experimentation and enrich the debate in this nascent and uncertain field of museum practice.

Museum Activism elucidates the largely untapped potential for museums as key intellectual and civic resources to address inequalities, injustice and environmental challenges. This makes the book essential reading for scholars and students of museum and heritage studies, gallery studies, arts and heritage management, and politics. It will be a source of inspiration to museum practitioners and museum leaders around the globe.

 

Museums and social activism, Kylie Message - cota : M/119-BC;

ISBN 9780415658539

304 Pages

Published October 14, 2013 by Routledge

Museums and Social Activism is the first study to bring together historical accounts of the African American and later American Indian civil rights-related social and reform movements that took place on the Smithsonian Mall through the 1960s and 1970s in Washington DC with the significant but unknown story about museological transformation and curatorial activism that occurred in the Division of Political and Reform History at the National Museum of American History at this time.

Based on interdisciplinary field-based research that has brought together cross-cultural and international perspectives from the fields of Museum Studies, Public History, Political Science and Social Movement Studies with empirical investigation, the book explores and analyses museums’ – specifically, curators’ – relationships with political stakeholders past and present.

By understanding the transformations of an earlier period, Museums and Social Activism offers provocative perspectives on the cultural and political significance of contemporary museums. It highlights the relevance of past practice and events for museums today and improved ways of understanding the challenges and opportunities that result from the ongoing process of renewal that museums continue to exemplify.

 

Museums as agents for social change, Njabulo Chipangura, Jesmael Mataga - cota : MT/128-BC.

ISBN 9781032019161

138 Pages 12 B/W Illustrations

Published January 9, 2023 by Routledge

Museums as Agents for Social Change is the first comprehensive text to examine museum practice in a decolonised moment, moving beyond known roles of object collection and presentation.

Drawing on studies of Mutare museum, a regional museum in Eastern Zimbabwe, this book considers how museums with inherited colonial legacies are dealing with their new environments. The book provides an examination of Mutare museum’s activism in engaging with topical issues affecting its surrounding community and Chipangura and Mataga demonstrate how new forms of engagement are being deployed to attract new audiences, whilst dealing with issues such as economic livelihoods, poverty, displacement, climate change and education. Illustrating how recent programmes have helped to reposition Mutare museum as a decolonial agent of social change and an important community anchor institution, the book also demonstrates how other museums can move beyond the colonial preoccupation with the gathering of collections, conservation and presentation of cultural heritage to the public.

Museums as Agents for Social Change will primarily be of interest to academics and students working in the fields of museum and heritage studies, history, archaeology and anthropology. It should also be appealing to museum professionals around the world who are interested in learning more about how to decolonise their museum.
