Product description

Review

'Making Representations is a beautifully double-edged title. It expresses the activity of museums as they display and interpret cultures, but also voices the growing demands of the peoples represented to be involved in the way their culture is presented in museums.' - Museums Journal 'The book is well presented and illustrated. This is a genuinely helpful contribution to museum thinking and should become a standard museum studies text.' - Gaynor Kavanagh, University of Leicester

Product Description

Drawing upon material from Britain, Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand, Making Representations explores the ways in which museums and anthropologists are responding to pressures in the field by developing new policies and practices, and forging new relationships with communities.


Simpson examines the increasing number of museums and cultural centres being established by indigenous and immigrant communities as they take control of the interpretive process and challenge the traditional role of the museum.


Museum studies students and museum professionals will all find this a stimulating and valuable read.
