You should have encountered a particular museum practice in class,
in your readings, or in your personal life that has led you to question why museums in general or why a given museum does something in a certain way (or has failed to do something that you think would be useful, informative, fun, or appealing). This assignment is your opportunity for proposing a change in either general or specific museum practice.
Write a 2-3 page proposal for what general or specific museum practice you want to change and why. You must support your reasons for change by using material covered in class and/or by citing scholarly articles from the museum studies literature and/or by presenting preliminary data. Your proposal must start with what you want to change, followed by a coherent argument
for why. Don’t forget to include a bibliography, graphics and the like where appropriate. If you need assistance narrowing a topic, learning how to conduct literature searches, or identifying relevant material.
