MC 1PP: PRESENTING THE PAST

Museum display environments create representations of the past through a complex process of design, curatorship, and interpretation. This module uses museological theory and practice to interrogate the way that heritage organisations present the past to the public. It provides students with the analytical and research skills needed to independently critique heritage interpretation and its principal components (audio-visual content, text, graphics, display configurations etc).
