Museums and the Past

Constructing Historical Consciousness

Museums and the Past displays how museums are important memory keepers and makers, and why.

Using case studies from a Canadian context, the contributors to this collection reflect on the challenges in maintaining and developing museums as meaningful places of memory and  learning. Discussions of museum practice and historical consciousness - how our understanding of the past shapes our sense of the future - consider the modern museum's narratives and pedagogical responsibilities and how museums continue to inform our sense of history.
