Visiting the Visitor: An Enquiry Into the Visitor Business in Museums
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Department of culture and media studies. (museologi)
University of Calgary.
2016 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The study of the museum visitor has undergone radical transformation. Each author here has asked unfamiliar questions and responded with fresh answers. Some of these questions involve the visitor's identity, what she brings to her museum experience. Can we gain entry into this experience? Does more technology really increase access to the objects themselves? Others probe the very nature of museum going and exhibition making, demanding that we reexamine the traditional exhibition to reposition the visitor and her meaning-making at the centre. The volume provokes imaginative research and encourages new conclusions.
