    This module provides an overview of basic elements of museums, their missions, history and their characteristics. It is organised around key activities of museums, viz history, structure, management, collections, display, interpretation, education and civil engagement. Students will be introduced to multidisciplinarity inherent in museum work, and will be exposed to various fields including history of art, curation, archaeology, anthropology and South African history. They will engage critically with existing material at museums and will pay attention to the relationship between these institutions and the publics they serve in an attempt to understand epistomologies and genealogies. In addition, they will gain an appreciation of the range of skills and knowledge required for succeeding in the museum practice.

    This module takes a varied approach in order to examine a set of critical issues in the field of heritage studies, as they are currently unfolding. In addition to understanding what it means to work in the heritage sector, students will look at currently breaking issues in heritage theory, policy and practice through an engagement with a series of public spaces and heritage sites, including sites of burial, consumption and the South African city. Students will be introduced to basic financial management, grant writing and heritage and environment legislation. We are interested in those points at which heritage forms a cutting edge in broader contestations around culture, identity and history. In addition, as a way of making sense of heritage management discourses, we examine some of the intellectual histories and genealogies of formulations of heritage in South Africa.

    This module will introduce students to the practices in museums including collecting, collections management, conservation and curation. In addition to mainstream museum collections, students will work with ‘ordinary’ and hidden archives found beyond the museum walls. This module is strongly focused on developing a familiarity and confidence when working with heritage objects including appropriate handling, housing and mounting for storage and exhibition; risk assessment and mitigation and general collections care theory and practice. In addition, students will be exposed to contemporary curatorial practices necessary for the practicalities of conceptualising and mounting of exhibitions and displays in a public space. They will as well be introduced to the growing field of digital curation.
