UMAC Tokyo Seminar: "University Museums as Cultural Commons: Interdisciplinary Research and Education in Museums", at Keio University Art Center (9-10 September; deadline for registration is 18 August).
"A University encompasses diverse cultures. Research and education in various disciplines generate autonomous collections which reflect unique cultural backgrounds of each academic field. A university museum is a place where these collections meet. Practices in museums — exhibitions, conservation, research, learning and so on — further reveal the cultural backgrounds of collections. Museums also gather and connect the members of communities surrounding the university ― students, faculties, researchers, alumni/ae, visitors.
"In this two-day seminar, we will explore the power of university museums which trigger the interchanges of people and knowledge from different cultures, through a keynote panel, paper presentations and poster sessions. We also offer visits to university museums and collections in Tokyo."
9-10 September 2019, Keio University Art Center
