Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
"Museums, like all other social institutions, reflect the tensions and contradictions of their times. The Museum and Exhibition Studies (MUSE) Graduate Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago proposes that museum problems, including declining attendance, homogenous employee and visitor demographics, and inequitable workplaces, and are deeply seeded in the field and its professions and that remedies will require radical reimagining and change. Responding to the urgencies of the moment and recognizing the need to transform museums and our cultural work within their spaces, MUSE offers this new journal. Fwd: Museums signals a desire to lift up and forward ideas that might push our collective thinking about cultural work. This volume explores the theme of inaugurations, or firsts and beginnings, with over 20 contributions from scholars and creative practitioners."--Amazon.
