In a Europe realizing the impact of globalization and human mass migration, the role of the national museums is put to debate. Studies from five different countries on how nations (and EU) develop policy in order to deploy national museums in redefinition of the nation state will be presented at this conference, establishing an arena in which museologists and cultural politicians get the chance to meet and debate a matter deeply important to everybody concerned with cultural identity uses.
A detailed conference programme will be published on the EuNaMus webpage within May.
Besides presentations of research findings, the conference includes a panel debate with invited speakers and commentators.
This is your chance to negotiate political and professional utopia with prominent actors on the European museum political field in 2012!
There is no conference fee, but please let us know which dates you plan to attend (free lunch will be served the first two days). All participants (except invited speakers) must take care of accommodation and travel themselves.
For participation, contact Lill Eilertsen preferably within the 15th of June. We expect the conference to be fully booked.
