Alex Hancock explores how research about museum collections is helping to connect British museums with more of the publics they claim to support. His emphasis is on decolonisation, engagement, and white European power. Ultimately, how do structural inequalities manifest in our museums, and how do we move to a new set of relationships? Alex undertook this project for the STSNewsRoom in summer 2021. His reporting focused on two specific events. First, Alex discusses with Tannis Davidson the “Displays of Power” exhibition at UCL Grant Museum of Zoology, which explores legacy of empire through objects in the museum and other natural history collections. Objects in these collections have complex histories of collection and ownership. We need to move past merely celebrating the collector and collecting, the exhibition argues, and instead highlight issues of power and control, removal and appropriation, privilege and the ability to ignore. Second, Alex discusses critiques of representation and engagement in museums with Professor Emily Dawson in light of Black Lives Matter campaigning. Professor Dawson has a long history working with groups from many communities to explore what museums mean to them and how museums serve different groups. For some people, museums just aren't welcoming places, Professor Dawson explains. Alex asks the straightforward question: where are these movements leading the future of museums? Is change likely in the near future?   Featuring Presenter and researcher Alex Hancock, UCL Class 0f 2021 Alex also contributed to STS Alchemy 2021   Interviewees Tannis Davidson, Curator of UCL Grant Museum of Zoology Professor Emily Dawson, UCL Professor of Education, Science and Society   In the break, you heard Jasmine Charkravarty, also part of the STSNewsRoom2021.   Additional materials   Professor Dawson's papers regarding the social exclusion of groups in museum spaces include: Dawson, E. (2014). “Not Designed for Us”: How Science Museums and Science Centers Socially Exclude Low-Income, Minority Ethnic Groups. Science Education, 98(6), 981-1008. Dawson, E. (2018). Reimagining publics and (non)participation: Exploring exclusion from science communication through the experiences of low-income, minority ethnic groups. Public Understanding of Science, 27(7), 772-786. The study mentioned by Dr. Dawson regarding Indigenous curatorial practices and how their artefacts and artwork are cared for in museums: Nagam, J., Lane, C., and Tamati-Quennell, M. (Eds.). (2020). Becoming our future: global indigenous curatorial practice (Winnipeg, Canada: ARP Books)   Host: Professor Joe Cain, UCL Professor in History and Philosophy of Biology   Music credits “Rollin At 5,” by Kevin MacLeod https://filmmusic.io/song/5000-rollin-at-5 “Ecossaise in E-flat,” by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://filmmusic.io/song/3700-ecossaise-in-e-flat-woo-86-   In the episode, Alex also uses this music: Young Logos, “Papov”, YouTube Audio Library Bad Snacks, “Wallflowers”, YouTube Audio Library   Podcast information “WeAreSTS” is a production of the Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS) at University College London (UCL).

Das Hesse Museum ist ein Touristenmagnet. 80 Prozent der Besucherinnen und Besucher kommen von ausserhalb, vor allem aus der Deutschschweiz. Die Tessinerinnen und Tessiner hatten zu Beginn Berührungsängste mit dem Museum über den meistgelesenen deutschsprachigen Autor.

They incite awe at the larger-than-life Triceratops skeleton, peer inside our cardiovascular system, or reflect on the brightest and darkest moments in history. We take a look at how museums work to impact our lives as they grow to adapt to visitor expectations, not just on what artifacts are displayed, but how the museums obtain them. First, we discuss how visitors can take advantage of the close-knit museums in midtown Houston with Houston Museum District, including free visitation days and discovering new museum spaces. Then, we speak with the curator of the new John P.

Mitten in Texas gibt es einen ziemlich merkwürdigen Dialekt: das "Texas German". Dabei handelt es sich um eine Mischung aus Deutsch und Englisch. Dieses Kauderwelsch haben deutsche Auswanderer vor Jahrhunderten nach ihrer Ankunft gesprochen. Es hat bis heute überlebt und dabei viele Eigenarten entwickelt - mit Wörtern, die es eigentlich weder im Deutschen noch im Englischen gibt. Doch dieser Dialekt stirbt allmählich aus, zusammen mit den Alten, die ihn noch sprechen. Und die Jungen interessiert dieses Erbe nicht mehr besonders. Die Historikerin eines Museums in Fredericksburg, eine ehemalige Lehrerin, Kulturschaffende aus New Braunfels und der Veranstalter eines Radioprogramms mit deutscher Musik versuchen, den Bedeutungsverlust des Texas German in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten zu erklären.

In Bone Rooms: From Scientific Racism to Human Prehistory in Museums (Harvard University Press, 2022 for paperback edition), Samuel J. Redman, Associate Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts, uncovers the equally fascinating and disturbing history behind the vast collections of human remains assembled by medical and natural history museums since the mid-nineteenth-century across the United States. The book shows how, in the aftermaths of the Civil War, human remains, and especially those of Indigenous people, were seen as valuable specimens for the advancement of medicine, before turning into crucial pieces of evidence for scientific racism, and eventually serving as material for the study and exhibition of human prehistory. Bone Rooms charts the trouble waters of the birth and evolution of bone rooms and offers a most timely historical account, as debates around the restitution of human remains and cultural artifacts held in museums have been gaining momentum in the recent years. Behind this important past lies the profound question of how to ensure that the quest for scientific knowledge does not, even if inadvertently, erase the humanity or cultural value of what have been seen as specimens only. As Redman advocates, “Museums can serve as key spaces to attempt to come to terms with the colonial legacy attached to archaeology and anthropology, through partially redressing past wrongs while continuing the search for new knowledge.” Victor Monnin, Ph.D. is an historian of science specialized in the history of Earth sciences.

In Bone Rooms: From Scientific Racism to Human Prehistory in Museums (Harvard University Press, 2022 for paperback edition), Samuel J. Redman, Associate Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts, uncovers the equally fascinating and disturbing history behind the vast collections of human remains assembled by medical and natural history museums since the mid-nineteenth-century across the United States. The book shows how, in the aftermaths of the Civil War, human remains, and especially those of Indigenous people, were seen as valuable specimens for the advancement of medicine, before turning into crucial pieces of evidence for scientific racism, and eventually serving as material for the study and exhibition of human prehistory.

Julie Hartman guest hosts for Dennis… The Twitter scandal is in full bloom. Julie lays out the new details that emerged over the weekend.  When government gets involved in suppressing speech, we're in trouble… The USA is responsible for the creation of the World Cup. Julie tells the story… Before the creation of museums, rich people had all the good stuff. Museums allow us to see the treasures of Western Civilization.  Leftist teachers are determined to confuse children about their sexual identity. This is sick… China and Saudi Arabia are getting cozy as US under the Biden Administration loses relevance and influence… Julie talks to Vivek Ramaswamy, entrepreneur, and author of A Nation of Victims.  Iran is one of the most dangerous and morally backward countries in the world, a major sponsor of terrorism and anti-Israel hate. It wasn't always this way. Actually, it's relatively new. Julie explores the modern history of Iran.Thanks for listening to the Daily Dennis Prager Podcast.

Listen as Harper speaks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about her desire to capture the complexity of life in a single image, why family relationships and home life are her chosen subjects, and the integral role beauty plays in her images, despite its diminished status in art today.
