This course will provide students with an introduction to museums and museum work from theoretical, historical, and organizational perspectives. Students in the course will engage with the history and development of museums, unpackage the relationship between anthropology and museology, and explore the importance of museums to preserve and interpret the past, as well as present and conceptualize the future. Additionally, all students will participate in an intensive field program at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois to learn about museums as complex institutions and familiarize themselves with exhibition organization and production through first-hand experience.
