Announcing: MALS Maymester 2015
Triangle Museums in Local, National and Global Contexts
Who goes to museums, and why? How is North Carolina unique in terms of its museum history? How do factors such as title, type, site, expectations and history shape visitor experiences? How do we integrate those experiences into our lives afterward? This interdisciplinary course will take students from the historical origins of the modern museum (such as the Louvre in Eighteenth-Century France) to the conjugations of global, national and local cultures as exhibited in Triangle-Area museums. Classroom sessions will be complemented by guest speakers and site visits to several local area museum institutions.
Students may begin registering March 18, 2015!
