ANTH 5330 - Museums and Material Culture

This course comprises: a critical consideration of museum practices, including processes of collection, archives, and exhibition; and critical approaches to material culture more broadly. It is also meant to be an exploratory course, dependent on full engagement between participants – instructor as well as students. We will be actively engaged in a process of discovery in terms of how to understand objects in cultural and historical  context, how to critically interrogate a variety of anthropological approaches to objects over time, and how to understand anthropology’s responsibility to the public through museum practices.

Prerequisites & Corequisites: Prerequisite: ANTH 2100

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to upperclass and graduate students.
