Abstract

Libraries, archives and museums have traditionally been a part of the public sphere's infrastructure. They have been so by providing public access to culture and knowledge, by being agents for enlightenment and by being public meeting places in their communities. Digitization and globalization poses new challenges in relation to upholding a sustainable public sphere. Can libraries, archives and museums contribute in meeting these challenges?

Abstract

Scattered Finds explores the politics, personalities and social histories that linked fieldwork in Egypt with the varied organizations around the world that received finds. Case studies range from Victorian municipal museums and women’s suffrage campaigns in the UK, to the development of some of the USA’s largest institutions, and from university museums in Japan to new institutions in post-independence Ghana. By juxtaposing a diversity of sites for the reception of Egyptian cultural heritage over the period of a century, Alice Stevenson presents new ideas about the development of archaeology, museums and the construction of Egyptian heritage. She also addresses the legacy of these practices, raises questions about the nature of the authority over such heritage today, and argues for a stronger ethical commitment to its stewardship.

Abstract

Au cours du premier semestre 2008, une expérimentation des effets de la gratuité totale sur la fréquentation et les publics a été menée auprès de quatorze institutions nationales, dix musées et quatre monuments dépendant du ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, des ministères de la Défense et de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche. Au-delà de l’augmentation de la fréquentation, l’enquête visait à évaluer l’effet de la gratuité sur la diversification des publics. Les résultats montrent que la gratuité a permis d’augmenter très significativement le nombre d’entrées, et que les étudiants, et plus généralement les jeunes âgés de moins de trente ans ont été les plus mobilisés, même si l’on observe un plébiscite de la gratuité auprès de tous les groupes sociaux. Qu’il s’agisse du public déjà familier des musées et plus encore des primo-visiteurs, l’effet accélérateur de la gratuité sur la démocratisation de l’accès aux institutions muséales est manifeste.

Abstract

Through a global comparative approach, Amy Sodaro uses in-depth case studies of five exemplary memorial museums that commemorate a range of violent pasts and allow for a chronological and global examination of the form: the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC; the House of Terror in Budapest; the Kigali Genocide Memorial Centre in Rwanda; the Museum of Memory and Human Rights in Santiago, Chile; and the National September 11 Memorial Museum in New York. Together, these case studies illustrate the historical emergence and global spread of the memorial museum and show how this new cultural form of commemoration is intended to be used in contemporary societies around the world emerging from widely divergent forms of political violence.

Abstract

Cette recherche se propose de tester l’hypothèse selon laquelle la fréquentation des musées d’art peut être prédite à partir de la distance entre l’image de soi et l’image que la personne a des visiteurs. L’outil de mesure construit a été utilisé auprès de 381 personnes. L’échantillon composé surtout d’étudiants présente cependant une certaine hétérogénéité du point de vue de l’âge et de la formation. Les résultats montrent en particulier que si la distance entre les images est positive dans le cas de ceux qui visitent les musées, elle est négative dans le cas contraire. Ceux qui n’ont pas de pratique de visite ont tendance à se sous-estimer par rapport à l’image qu’ils ont du visiteur de musée. Il est alors nécessaire de s’interroger sur un accompagnement qui permettrait de réduire cette distance négative.

Abstract

Ausstellungen kultur- und naturwissenschaftlicher Thematik gehören heute zu den wichtigsten Äußerungen kulturellen Lebens. Aber was geschieht eigentlich, wenn man ausstellt? Wie »wirklich« ist das Ausgestellte? Das Buch fasst Ausstellungen als »Wirklichkeitsspiele« auf, in denen die Bedeutung der Dinge nicht nur vermittelt, sondern auch neu ausgehandelt werden kann. Der von Alexander Klein gewählte Zugang legt die historischen Wurzeln des Ausstellens frei und untersucht sein spannungsreiches Verhältnis zum Sammeln. Dabei erweist sich, dass das Medium »wissenschaftliche Ausstellung« die Grenzen des konventionellen Museums sprengt. Ein bebilderter Teil mit einer kommentierten Auswahl von Exponaten rundet die Publikation ab.

Abstract

Europe’s national museums have since their creation been at the centre of on-going nation making processes. National museums negotiate conflicts and contradictions and entrain the community sufficiently to obtain the support of scientists and art connoisseurs, citizens and taxpayers, policy makers, domestic and foreign visitors alike. National Museums and Nation-building in Europe 1750-2010 assess the national museum as a manifestation of cultural and political desires, rather than that a straightforward representation of the historical facts of a nation. National Museums and Nation-building in Europe 1750-2010 examines the degree to which national museums have created models and representations of nations, their past, present and future, and proceeds to assess the consequences of such attempts. Revealing how different types of nations and states – former empires, monarchies, republics, pre-modern, modern or post-imperial entities – deploy and prioritise different types of museums (based on art, archaeology, culture and ethnography) in their making, this book constitutes the first comprehensive and comparative perspective on national museums in Europe and their intricate relationship to the making of nations and states.

Abstract

The Batavian Society of Arts and Sciences (Bataviaasch Genootschap van Kunsten en Wetenschappen), was founded in 1778 to become the predecessor of the National Library and National Museum of the Republik Indonesia. It was considered to be the most important cultural and scholarly organization of the Netherlands East Indies in the time of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and the colonial period. This studie pays attention to the foundation, programme and area of interest of the Society, also to its members, organization, growth, decline and resurrection, but most of all to the relation with the government of a formally private enterprise, that sometimes seemed to become part of the governmental structure. The archives of the Society are kept in the National Archives of the Republik Indonesia. Since 1878, they have only scarcely been available to scholars from outside of the Society. They have, however, proven to be of great importance to historians, linguists, and anthropologists.

Abstract

This volume captures the status of digital humanities within the Arts in South Africa. The primary research methodology falls within the broader tradition of phenomenological hermeneutics, with a specific emphasis on visual hermeneutics. Some of the tools utilised as part of the visual hermeneutic methods are geographic information system (GIS) mapping, sensory ethnography and narrative pathways. Digital humanities is positioned here as the necessary engagement of the humanities with the pervasive digital culture of the 21st century. It is posited that the humanities and arts, in particular, have an essential role to play in unlocking meaning from scientific, technological and data-driven research. The critical engagement with digital humanities is foregrounded throughout the volume, as this crucial engagement works through images. Images (as understood within image studies) are not merely another form of text but always more than text. As such, this book is the first of its kind in the South African scholarly landscape, and notably also a first on the African continent. Its targeted audience include both scholars within the humanities, particularly in the arts and social sciences. Researchers pursuing the new field of digital humanities may also find the ideas presented in this book significant. Several of the chapters analyse the question of dealing with digital humanities through representations of the self as viewed from the Global South. However, it should be noted that self-representation is not the only area covered in this volume. The latter chapters of the book discuss innovative ways of implementing digital humanities strategies and methodologies for teaching and researching in South Africa.
