Museums can be significant agents in understanding and interpreting culture, society, and knowledge around the world. But the histories of collections and their movement into contexts such as the museum can also be contentious. What role do patrons, collectors and other gate-keepers of collections play in how objects and artworks are understood? How can we critically approach the many ways in which meaning is created in museums? Using examples from different collections, this seminar series will explore the relationship between museums and meaning from postcolonial perspectives.
