Curating the Past
Curatorship is the distinct - and often contested - scholarly endeavour centred in museums, art galleries, and historic sites. Curators develop collections, use artefacts, artworks, landscapes, heritage properties, and archaeological resources to create meaning, and communicate their findings through exhibits, restorations, publications, and other media. We examine curatorship and connoisseurship through lectures, films, seminars, and field trips to serve students interested in curatorial methodologies as well as those wishing to explore museums intellectually and/or as career destinations.
