Description

At the dawn of the 21st century, museums of society seem to be undergoing a renaissance, with approaches generating a new museological scene. Basically, the new vision involves an interdisciplinary view of societies in which the concept of society or civilization itself creates a new discourse which aims to make the museums reflect on the major challenges faced by society today, such as multiculturalism, identities, and the complexity of the modern world.nThe papers published in this book provide an introduction to some of the most prestigious museums of society in the world and an analysis of some of the major issues. The papers – written by the museum directors or managers – offer an excellent insight into the way the museums have developed and the challenges they face, whilst also providing some useful guidelines which might be taken into consideration in Catalonia.n
