This past week the Museum Science and Management students participated in University of Tulsa’s Research Colloquium. The Student Research Colloquium provides TU students with an opportunity to gain public speaking experience, learn about research from fields outside their own academic discipline, and experience judging methods used by professional organizations for national and international meetings/conferences.
The Museum Science and Management program created their own special session during the colloquium. Museum Science focuses on theoretical and practical questions about the aims and purposes of museums, education, the nature of learners and learning institutions. The contributions to this special topic session represented the breadth of concerns that Museum Science and Management Studies seeks to address. The first two papers focus on museums in their communities. The latter three papers employ art historical methods to researching local museum collections.
