Ashgate recently published the fourth book in an informal series of books made possible by the European Commission-funded ‘MeLa – European Museums in an age of Migrations’ project.
The MeLa Project looks at the effects of the migration of people, objects, knowledge and information on the form and role of the contemporary museum, and aims to identify innovative practices that will drive its evolution.
The MeLa general objectives include:
- Rethinking the role of museums in building a democratic inclusive European citizenship;
- Envisioning strategies and exhibition practices to support the new role of museums in an age of migrations;
- Improving knowledge on cultural heritage diversity and identity representation.
