Description: Museums, Equality and Social Justiceis a provocative, timely and scholarly but accessible collection of essays that brings together more than thirty leading thinkers, practitioners and researchers from wide ranging backgrounds in twenty substantive chapters to critically explore the shifting roles and increasing significance of diversity, equality and social justice in international contemporary museum policy and practice. The volume examines issues of diversity and equality not only in relation to visitors and public programmes but to all areas of museum organisation and activity – including leadership and management, governance, employment, collections development, marketing and so on.The last two decades have seen concerns for equality, diversity, social justice and human rights move from the margins of museum thinking to the core. Conceived to reflect on and inform debates in museum research, policy and practice at this critical time, Museums, Equality and Social Justiceis an essential tool for practitioners wishing to understand these debates and invaluable for students studying the development and possible future of the modern museum.
