ANT 324 - Museum Studies


Credits: 3

This course is designed to introduce students to the history of the idea of putting objects on display, the methods of exhibition, and the conflicts confronting curators both in the past and the present. After a survey of their history, the class will explore the various types of museums and delve into theoretical material about objects, displays, presentations, and ethics. In addition, students will learn the basics of museum label writing and exhibit planning by creating a mock exhibit proposal, giving them factual, theoretical, and practical knowledge in the field.
