            Indigenous Museology examines the emergence of indigenising museologies in New Zealand, Australia, the USA and Canada. As the first international comparative study of museums and indigenous people, the book produces new knowledge about indigenous ways of knowing, doing and being ...that are emerging from the intersection of museums, heritage and public history with native ontologies and epistemologies. Whilst McCarthy acknowledges the specificities of national contexts, he also takes the time to explore the commonalities and differences between them, thus providing a unique perspective never attempted before.

            What does a museum do, and who is a museum for, in these times of historically low public trust in institutions and uncertainty precipitated by rapidly evolving technological, political, economic, and social contexts? Providing an examination of the complex interplay between the ...museum, digital technologies, and the dynamic external pressures shaping and transforming the institutional context, The Digital Future of Museums argues that museums today can neither ignore the importance of digital technologies when engaging their communities, nor fail to address the broader social, economic, and cultural changes that shape their digital offerings. Drawing on moderated conversations with well-respected and influential museum practitioners, thinkers and experts in related fields around the globe, this book explores the role of digital technology in contemporary museum practice within Europe, the USA, Australasia and Asia. With conversations organised around three key themes, this book will present a mix of ideas, practices,a strategies and reflections upon successful, and failed, projects and approaches grounded in cutting-edge contemporary practice that will help prepare today's museums for tomorrow. Culminating in a set of competing possible visions for the future of the museum sector and accompanied by videos and a podcast series, The Digital Future of Museums should be essential reading for museum studies students and those who teach or write about the museum sector. It should also be of great interest to those who work in, for, and with museums, as well as practitioners working in galleries, archives and libraries.

            For centuries, M ori treasures, or taonga, have been some of the most prized, popular and precious objects held in museums around the world. From Te Maori to Te Papa and beyond, initiatives in Aotearoa New Zealand over the last 30 years have continued to provide new models for mu...seums around the world. With this has changed the role of museum staff who face new challenges in collecting, caring for and exhibiting the taonga of the M ori people in partnership with iwi (tribes) as well as developments involving the repatriation of human remains, the opening of cultural centres, and debates over identity, cultural property and heritage management. How do museum professionals deal with the indigenous objects in their care from day to day? How do they engage on a practical level with tribal communities? How do museums structure themselves to meet the needs of visitors as well as these communities? For the first time ever, Museums and Maori answers these questions. Using practical examples and the voices of the indigenous professionals and community representatives who have transformed museum practice in New Zealand over the past three decades, this all-new book provides an up-to-the-minute snapshot of New Zealand museums today across the whole range of museum work: mission and governance, management and staffing, collection care and management, exhibition development, education and public programmes, research and training. Ground-breaking initiatives - and their legacies - are revealed through interviews, policy documents, images and observations of professionals at work in museums ranging from the national museum Te Papa to the tiniest regional galleries. Museums and Maori addresses a major gap in the literature and a yawning gulf in professional training, making it indispensible as a reader for students, a handbook for professionals and a critical study relevant to the academic fields of museum and heritage studies, anthropology, art history, cultural studies, history,
