Assessing collaborative, community-based museum practice and changing cultures of citizenship at the National Museum of the American Indian

Project: Research

Project Details


Museums are increasingly expected to contribute to an expanded concept of citizenship that addresses the conditions and concerns of contemporary multicultural postcolonial societies. This project investigates programs developed by the National Museum of the American Indian that aim to create new practices of citizenship for Native Americans. The resulting study will analyse whether collaborative projects increase interventions by minority groups into governmental spaces like museums. It will assess whether the National Museum of the American Indian might provide a model of practice for other national museums attempting to work in partnership with community-based museums to improve the experience and representation of citizenship.
