How do objects, places, spaces or practices get a place in ‘the global museum’? This seminar seeks to take advantage of what we as a museum already know and do, as the entire academic staff of the Museum of Cultural History in various ways engages in heritage making; as advisors to the Directorate of Cultural Management, as archaeologists, as keepers of collections, as conservators, as curators, exhibition designers, as magazine administrators, or as anthropologists. To discover our strengths, this seminar represents a first effort to engage in a joint comparative exploration of what such ‘makings’ of cultural heritage, world heritage, museum objects and archaeological objects have in common.
