Call for Papers: Theory and Practice: The Emerging Museum Professionals Journal is accepting Abstracts for consideration for its second volume: “Museum Futures: Diversity, Inclusivity, and Social Justice.”
Abstract Deadline: Monday, December 3, 2018.
The future of museums is constantly in question, yet the shifting priorities of museums throughout history have shown that museums are, in fact, adaptable.
In our second volume in the “Museum Futures” series, we seek to engage in a dialogue about how issues of diversity, inclusivity, and social justice will affect how museums interact with objects, visitors, and their communities at-large. What do we mean when we speak about diversity? How can museums expand the ways in which they are inclusive? What is the role of the museum in the examination and implementation of social justice?
This volume seeks to answer these questions by exploring the transdisciplinary theories involved in museum studies, as well as what we learn from being practitioners within museums.
