Museums and the Shaping of Knowledge (Heritage: Care-preservation-management)

Eilean Hooper-Greenhill

Museums have been active in shaping knowledge over the last six hundred years. Yet what is their function within today's society? At the present time, when funding is becoming increasingly scarce, difficult questions are being asked about the justification of museums. Museums and the Shaping of Knowledge presents a critical survey of major changes in current assumptions about the nature of museums. Through the examination of case studies, Eilean Hooper-Greenhill reveals a variety of different roles for museums in the production and shaping of knowledge. Today, museums are once again organising their spaces and collections to present themselves as environments for experimental and self-directed learning.


Museums of Influence

Kenneth Hudson

In this original and highly illustrated book Kenneth Hudson reviews the development of the world's museums over the past 200 years by identifying 37 pioneers in ten countries - from the British Museum in London and the Metropolitan Museum in New York to the outdoor Sukuma Museum in Tanzania and the tiny, pre-fabricated Tacubaya Museum in the slums of Mexico City. The museums of the world very enormously in style, size and approach. Yet amid this diversity, it is possible to identify a significantly small number that have influenced museum thinking and practice. The achievement of these pioneers is described against the background of their times and the often colourful personalities involved. Finally Kenneth Hudson attempts to assess present trends and to forecast what kinds of museum are likely to be Museums of Influence during the next twenty or thirty years. This book will appeal to all museum enthusiasts; archaeologists; historians; historians of art and science; industrial archaeologists and professionals working in or designing museums.
