ANTH 375 - Museums and Society

4 credits
This course explores the intersection of the museum and its public with a focus on the rise of the museum in the late eighteenth century and its development up to the present day. Why were museums created, and what purposes do these institutions serve? What values do they project? Such questions are addressed through selected case studies and readings of key theoretical texts in the field. Analysis of current museum and gallery exhibitions, discussion of such issues as the role of government, the interdependence of museums and the art market, and debates over repatriation, restitution and looting or theft will also be addressed. Same as: ARTH 375   Offered spring semester in even-numbered years. CLA-Breadth/Interdisciplinary, CLA-Off Campus Experience
