From the Back Cover:

Retaining the multidisciplinary focus of the critically acclaimed first edition, the new edition of Museum Studies: An Anthology of Contexts presents a comprehensive collection of approaches to museums and their relation to history, culture, and philosophy. Striking a careful balance between contemporary analysis and historical documentation, the new edition features primary and secondary texts spanning the course of some two hundred years of museum history that reveal a wealth of insights into culture and society.

Among the developments in twenty-first-century museum scholarship featured in this new edition are issues of inclusion and exclusion, repatriation, indigenous models of collection and display, museums in an age of globalization, visitor studies, and interactive technologies. A new section on relationships, interactions, and responsibilities focuses on the intersection of memory, history, ethics, and affect within the museum and beyond its walls. With its expansive nature and multidisciplinary approach, Museum Studies solidifies its reputation as the primary resource for this important academic discipline.

About the Author:

Bettina Messias Carbonell is Associate Professor of English and Program Coordinator for the interdisciplinary Humanities and Justice major at John Jay College, City University of New York. Her publications and current research focus on ethics, aesthetics, and the representation of history in literary texts and in museums.
