    By Appointment, APPT

Museums on Site immerses students in critical investigations of the history, theory and practice of British museums and collecting institutions. Students address the ways and "why's" societies have organized, classified, stored and displayed knowledge and material culture throughout time as well as the impact of those endeavors on different communities, individuals and environments - in England and across the globe. Opportunities for discussion, reading, writing, presentation, multi-modal analysis and most of all, on-site visits, offer students multiple ways to ask questions and practice problem-solving some of the knottier past and present challenges of cultural institutions.
