CONFERENCE TITLE:

TRANSFORMING COLLECTING POLICIES IN MUSEUMS: THE NEED FOR LEADERSHIP AND SOCIETAL RESPONSIBILITY

 

Programme

We live in a complex, confused and fast changing world. Museums are very important cultural and social institutions and must respond to and reflect these changes. Museums are responsible for making their visitors and the wider society conscious of current debates through their actions, exhibitions, events and activism. The challenges of decolonizing museums, engaging with ethnotourism and providing museum leadership that enables museums to address important contemporary issues are relevant, and provocative themes for our conference.

The main aims of the conference are the following:

– to open a dialogue between scholars of ethnographic and other museums and to offer a platform for the presentation and discussion of recent research;

– to highlight the significance of the concepts of Decolonizing Museums, Ethnotourism Management and Leadership and Museum management for our times;

– to facilitate a global dialogue on these themes by bringing together museum professionals from all around the world,

– to critically engage with existing theories and methodologies and to provide a platform for the presentation of new research and initiatives that will help us to tackle these core issues and the ways in which we might transform the concept of `collecting’ that has defined museums for decades.

Session 1: Decolonizing Museums: Restitution, Repatriation & Healing

Session 2: Museums and Ethnotourism
