MUSEUM TRANSFORMATIONS
DECOLONIZATION AND DEMOCRATIZATION

Edited By ANNIE E. COOMBES AND RUTH B. PHILLIPS

Museum Transformations: Decolonization and Democratization addresses contemporary approaches to decolonization, greater democratization, and revisionist narratives in museum exhibition and program development around the world. The text explores how museums of art, history, and ethnography responded to deconstructive critiques from activists and poststructuralist and postcolonial theorists, and provided models for change to other types of museums and heritage sites.

The volume's first set of essays discuss the role of the museum in the narration of difficult histories, and how altering the social attitudes and political structures that enable oppression requires the recognition of past histories of political and racial oppression and colonization in museums. Subsequent essays consider the museum's new roles in social action and discuss experimental projects that work to change power dynamics within institutions and leverage digital technology and new media.

THE INTERNATIONAL HANDBOOKS OF MUSEUM STUDIES
General Editors: Sharon Macdonald and Helen Rees Leahy

The International Handbooks of Museum Studies is a multi-volume reference work that represents a state-of-the-art survey of the burgeoning field of museum studies. Featuring original essays by leading international museum experts and emerging scholars, readings cover all aspects of museum theory, practice, debates, and the impact of technologies. The four volumes in the series, divided thematically, offer in-depth treatment of all major issues relating to museum theory; historical and contemporary museum practice; mediations in art, design, and architecture; and the transformations and challenges confronting the museum. In addition to invaluable surveys of current scholarship, the entries include a rich and diverse panoply of examples and original case studies to illuminate the various perspectives. Unprecedented for its in-depth topic coverage and breadth of scholarship, the multi-volume International Handbooks of Museum Studies is an indispensable resource for the study of the development, roles, and significance of museums in contemporary society.

SHARON MACDONALD is Professor of Social Anthropology in the Institute of European Ethnology, Humboldt-Üniversität zu Berlin, where she also directs the CARMAH, the Centre for Anthropological Research on Museums and Heritage.

HELEN REES LEAHY is Professor Emerita of the University of Manchester, where she was Director of the Centre for Museology from 2002–2017.
