Use a lot of examples of uk museums. (For refrences try to in” rel=”nofollow”>include these) For readin” rel=”nofollow”>ing, there’s a great book of essays called The Long Way Home (Turnbull and Pickerin” rel=”nofollow”>ing) that would be really useful. There’s also a book called Museums and Restitution that looks at some contemporary ideas around this. Any book or chapter you fin” rel=”nofollow”>ind on museum ethics will also generally cover issues of repatriation (Routledge has a couple of good collections on museum ethics).

James Cuno has written and spoken extensively about this – he argues again” rel=”nofollow”>inst repatriation. He has a good book called Whose Culture? and has also written a lot of articles.

You can also fin” rel=”nofollow”>ind a lot of discussion about this in” rel=”nofollow”>in newspapers like the Guardian, as it’s a contested topic and often written about! The only thin” rel=”nofollow”>ing to bear in” rel=”nofollow”>in min” rel=”nofollow”>ind is that newspapers aren’t always an entirely rigorous academic source, as they can be opin” rel=”nofollow”>inion-based; they’re best used in” rel=”nofollow”>in your essay to talk about public opin” rel=”nofollow”>inion and media debate on topics, rather than as sources of fact.

Then please write 4 (300 words each) blog posts on these questions.
1. Choose an exhibition or museum where you thin” rel=”nofollow”>ink the space is in” rel=”nofollow”>in tension with the artworks or artefacts. Explain” rel=”nofollow”>in why, usin” rel=”nofollow”>ing theoretical texts to support your answer. (Choose museum in” rel=”nofollow”>in london uk)
2. How do exhibition visitors in” rel=”nofollow”>interpret or make meanin” rel=”nofollow”>ing from exhibitions? Draw on theoretical texts to develop your position
3. What do you thin” rel=”nofollow”>ink is the role of the contemporary curator? Make an argument for your opin” rel=”nofollow”>inion, drawin” rel=”nofollow”>ing on theoretical texts
4. Choose an exhibition and analyse the strategies of display it uses. What message does it communicate? What effects does it have? (Museum in” rel=”nofollow”>in london UK)
