Museology – A Bridge Between Theory and Practice

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Our book "Museum Studies – A Bridge Between Theory and Practice" will be an edited collection of 20-25 chapters by leading scholars and practitioners. The book will, for the first time, give a concise presentation of Finnish museum studies to a wider international audience, as well as to students and museum professionals in the field. The book will combine theoretical and practical approaches of museum studies, thus making it the first study book for mainly master's level students. In addition, museum professionals will be able to use the book as a practical handbook of recent developments. While the book draws primarily on expertise and developments from within Finland, it has a relevance for students and professionals globally by showcasing best practices in teaching museum studies as developed by the University of Helsinki. The international group of museum professionals is a very closely-knit society, where the concept of lifelong learning is widely applied. We as editors believe that this aspect will make this a valuable study book for a wide audience.

The content of the book will follow the course requirements used at Helsinki University for museum studies. These are as follows:

A. History and Theory of Museology
B. Museum Leadership
C. Collection Development
D. Exhibitions and Content Planning
E. Audience Engagement
F. Ethics

Recent developments in the field of museum studies will be highlighted through these main outlines. The book will become part of a wider discussion of how best to preserve our cultural heritage, given the pressures of the modern world, be they economic or value-based. One of the key aspects will be to focus on the meaning of culturally significant issues in society. The book will make Finnish museum studies a more internationally recognized concept.

Editors: Dr. Nina Robbins, Prof. Suzie Thomas, Dr. Minna Tuominen, Docent Anna Wessman.
