Museums, Museology and New Museology

Shahida Munsuri (Author)

Museology is concerned with artwork through institutionalized collections, always in accordance with the concepts and methods of the given field and its professional criteria. The field of museology includes the collections, research on the collections, and the public presention of these research studies' results, the mode of which changes with time and space. In the course of the history of modern, public museums, which were institutionalized in the 19th century, the most prominent turn was spawned when critical refliction was subsumed by the museum itself: when, from the 1960s on, critical refliections gradually have been incorporated into the collection and the representional mechanisms of the museum. In the theory and practice of cultural representiona, a theoretical realignment can be detecated from the 1960s on: the series of turns in social sciences and art theory appeared in scientific and art theoretical texts, as well as in works and visual genres. these shifts contributed in museological work to the critical/ self-critical, reflexive/ self-reflexive re-assessment of the authorial discourse of the museum collection that was based on the impermeability of scientific canons. This book presents up-to-date imformation about museums and museology. The book provides readers with carefully chosen examples of museum activities-for example, exhibition and sharing information, database construction, access to and conservation of museum collections, relationshipsbetween museums and local communities, and international cooperation in the field of cultural heritage. This book is highly recommended to readers who seek a global vision of museum studies.
