MUX 119: Museums in Society

This 1-credit, half-semester course will meet during the Fall 2017 semester on Fridays from 1:10-2:30pm in Seelye 106. It is offered S/NC only.

Museums are multi-layered institutions with complex histories. Their role
in society reflects contemporary perspectives on the ways knowledge is produced, categorized, and communicated. This course introduces students to key topics reflecting the history of collecting institutions, their evolving public mission, and critical issues central to their work today.
