Abstract [sv]

Migration är ett av vår tids tongivande fenomen och har djupgående effekter i samhället. Museerna kan i dess spår inta en roll med potential att påverka vår förståelse av världen. När museer är som bäst utgör de platser där människor kan utforska transnationella kontakter, migrationens verkligheter och mänskliga rättigheter. Därigenom blir de relevanta som kulturinstitutioner och kan bidra till positiv social förändring, uppmuntra solidaritet och hållbar utveckling. I Museums in a time of migration reflekterar ledande forskare och museikuratorer över museernas engagemang i migrationsfrågor. Författarna presenterar nya och nyskapande projekt från hela världen tillsammans med grundliga analyser av de teoretiska och praktiska villkoren bakom dem. Särskild uppmärksamhet ägnas museernas roller, representationer, samlingar och samarbeten.

Abstract [en]

Migration in all its forms is a prominent phenomenon, with far-ranging implications for society. Museums, being important educational institutions, not only reflect society, but what they display has the potential to affect our understanding of the world. When museums become places where people can explore the realities of migration, transnational connections, and human rights, they become even more relevant as cultural institutions, and can help drive positive social change, encouraging solidarity and sustainable development. In the book Museums in a Time of Migration, leading scholars and museum curators reflect on museums’ engagement in migration issues. New and innovative museum projects around the world are presented in telling analyses of the theoretical and practical realities. Special attention is paid to the museums’ roles, representations, collections, and collaborations in a time of migration.
