Small Museums in a Global Context

When:
Venue: Birkbeck 43 Gordon Square, Keynes Library

This event has ended.

During the late twentieth century there was a massive rise in the numbers of museums across the world. In the main, these new museums were small, independent and addressed non-traditional subjects. However, very little is known about the differences and commonalities in museum development in a global context. In this half-day symposium, specialists on Brazilian, British, Canadian, Tibetan, and Kenyan museums will explore the various factors that underpinned museum expansion in specic countries or regions. We will ask: what forms did the new museums take, who founded them, for what reasons, and with what effects?
