In a three-page research paper, discuss a current museum issue. What challenges and opportunities does it represent? You should include specific examples. Your bibliography must have a minimum of three sources.
Current Issues: these can include but are not limited to: Pop-Up and Experience-based Exhibition Spaces (Wonderspaces, Museum of Ice Cream, Meow Wolf, etc.), controversial exhibitions (Whitney Biennial 2017, Sensation, Enola Gay, Hide/Seek), deacessioning, Nazi-era provenance, and cultural patrimony (Parthenon/Elgin Marbles, British Museum).
1. Use Chicago Style and double space papers
2. Papers should be thoroughly and thoughtfully researched, and should be accompanied by footnotes and bibliography. PLAGIARISM WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. If you are confused on any point, please consult with your professor.
3. Many good scholarly articles are available through JSTOR
4. Dictionary and encyclopedia resources such as Oxford Art Online are good sources forbibliography, but should not be cited in your list of sources.
