MUSEUMS 700 A & B

Taonga and Identity in Museums


Description

Key issues facing museums today are governance of indigenous collections and relationships with descendant communities. Cross-cultural in its analysis, the course will particularly focus on taonga as the vehicle for engaging in wider international debates concerning identity, repatriation, reciprocity, power, agency, research and exhibition of indigenous cultures by metropolitan museums. To complete this course students must enrol in MUSEUMS 700 A and B.
