Civilizing the Museum: The Collected Writings of Elaine Heumann Gurian
The essays in 'Civilizing the Museum' introduce students to the powerful, sometimes contested, and often unrealised notion that museums should welcome all because they house the collective memory of all. The author uses her own experiences to explore the possibilities for making museums more central and relevant to society.
