Challenge and Transformation: Museums in Cape Town and Sydney looks at how change takes place in museums. Built around a series of case studies outlining the way ethnographic museums, historic sites and art galleries come to terms with issues of diversity and change, this work should be useful and informative for students and museum professionals alike.
This book represents an initial publication devoted to exploring diversity and promoting intercultural dialogue in museum practice. A subsequent volume, Human Remains and Museum Practice, addresses the political and ethical dimensions of the collection and display of human remains in museums.
