Education for a New "Museology"
Charman, Karen
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v17 n10 p1067-1077 2013
This article provides a critical reading of a curriculum initiative in tertiary education designed to address students who are traditionally marginalised in the Australian tertiary sector. An argument is made that this curriculum approach with its emphases on authenticity, identity, agency and embodied learning addresses issues of the disjunct between access to knowledge, museums and cultural capital. The political work of this curriculum is situated in the new museology. The author draws on Ellsworth's sensation of learning to elaborate the contributions made possible by the curriculum "Learning and teaching in public spaces" to museum education and tertiary education.
