      NATIONAL MUSEUMS: NEGOTIATING HISTORIES

      A three day conference at

      The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia

      July 12-14, 1999

      NATIONAL MUSEUMS: NEGOTIATING HISTORIES is a conference exploring the
      negotiation of diverse histories in contemporary national museums,
      particularly those in settler societies such as Australia, New Zealand,
      Canada, the United States and South Africa. These institutions have been
      working through complex and often controversial questions of how to
      interpret and communicate varied understandings and perspectives of
      histories and nations. The conference will address dimensions of this
      process such as the presentation of indigenous histories and cultures,
      settler and migrant histories and cultures, and environmental histories and
      human-environment interactions. It will address not only issues of display
      and exhibition, but also how histories are negotiated in the contexts of
      acquisition, custodianship, and repatriation issues, and the production of
      public programs and educational materials.

      Invited speakers include
      Dr George Macdonald Director, Museum Victoria
      Dr Gaye Sculthorpe Program Director, Museum Victoria
      Dr Udo Kussel Director, National Cultural History Museum, South Africa
      Dr Hans-Martin Hinz Stabstelle, Deutsches Historisches Museum

      Dr Tom Griffiths Fellow, Dept. of History, RSSS, Australian National Uni.
      Dr Mike Smith Senior Curator, National Museum of Australia
