Reimagining Museums: Practice in the Arabian Peninsula


A new volume on museum practice in the Arabian peninsula, edited by Dr. Pamela Erskine-Loftus, is slated to come in January 2013, but you can pre-order it now and receive a free digital edition immediately. If anything, the diverse topics of the different chapters show that museums today are engaging with the same cultural transformations as any other institution. The book is divided into three sections:

  1. Understandings of Place and Museum
  2. Communities and Audiences
  3. Exhibiting and Educating
A complete list of the chapter titles and authors is available on the pre-order website.
