ΕΔΣ POL 215 Museum Education and Communication

COURSE INFORMATION

Museum communication is a well-organized and carefully controlled communication relationship that develops between producers and consumers of museum exhibitions and other activities through museum collections. When museum or heritage visitors encounter museum objects and the interpretative suggestions prepared for them by heritage professionals, they develop (consciously or unconsciously) their own ideas about them and therefore construct their own understanding about the past, history, art, archaeology, nature, etc. These personal ideas affect in a way the creation of social community ideas, contribute to the creation of identities; they are often conflicting, or they recreate national or other narratives. During this course, we are going to discuss different forms of direct or indirect communication, inside and outside museum spaces, the design of learning programs, as well as methodologies and tools for their critical evaluation.
