CFP: Museum Utopias 2012 - A Conference

CFP: Museum Utopias 2012 - A Conference

In everyday life, the chance to dream, to imagine, to explore the idea of the museum is limited, leaving many museums reacting to change, rather than being able to think about how the museum could be. This Symposium will give museum researchers, students and practitioners the opportunity to consider the changes that are taking place in the world and how museums might respond to them, using the idea of Utopia as a place for dreaming as well as thinking practically about how these challenges might be addressed.

This conference will be held at the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, UK, on the 27th and 28th March 2012.
