MUSE 803. Seminar in Current Museum Topics. 3 Hours.

This course has two core objectives - (1) to consider current issues in and around museums that will have a bearing on the field's future, and (2) to be a springboard for museum studies students to formulate and make substantial headway on their required final projects. Therefore, in addition to each week's readings assigned by the instructor, each student will have several opportunities to select the readings for the rest of the class. The student-assigned readings will be relevant to each student's research, and will (1) help students acquire a more nuanced and critical grasp of works that are key to their research by getting feedback from the rest of the class; and (2) build the class's general awareness of important scholarship in the field.
