This book investigates the historical practice of producing stereotyped spectacles of colonized peoples at the great exhibitions and in colonial photography, and relates it to the shaping of European and settler identities. In doing so, it singles out the homogeneous aspects of colonialism's culture as well as distinguishing its discontinuities. By comparing the images produced in Britain and France with those produced in North America, Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific, Japan, and China, it proposes that differences in representations of colonized peoples between the imperial centres and the colonies were the result of different social and political agendas. By focusing on the images connected to anthropology, dying race theory, travel, tourism, and portraiture, Maxwell argues that while some photographs were directed at naturalizing the precept of colonialism, others were used to criticize it and to empower indigenous subjects. Written from a postcolonial perspective, and pursuing an interdisciplinary approach, this book will be of interest to scholars, students, and researchers intent on knowing more about the images of racial and cultural difference that shaped our immediate past.

"Poetic Exhibitions: Romantic Aesthetics and the Pleasures of the British Museum offers an extensive interdisciplinary study of the relation between British Romantic poetry and the rise of national museum culture in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. In a simultaneously theoretical and historical analysis, it studies a range of poetry and aesthetic philosophy in relation to the first hundred years of the British Museum, from its establishment in the 1750s to the completion of its current edifice in the 1850s. It thereby provides a sequence of aesthetic reflections on the various social, cultural, and imaginative challenges posed by this novel institution. In the process of tracing poetic and critical responses to the museum and its collections, Poem Exhibitions simultaneously demonstrates the impact of nationalist ideologies and scientific discourse on formal and thematic developments in Romantic poetry and aesthetics." "Poetic Exhibitions seek both to enrich the study of modern museums with the insights of literary theory and to establish a more practical connection between Romanticism and its attendant ideologies. By reading the aesthetic reflections of such writers as Joseph Addison, William Hogarth, Edmund Burke, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge in relation to the exhibitionary plans and popular guidebooks for the early museum, Gidal demonstrates the connections between abstract theory and cultural politics. By reflecting upon the collections and excavations of Sir Hans Sloane, Lord Elgin, Charles Townley, and Austen Henry Layard in relation to their institutional acquisition, he explores the poetics of national incorporation. By comparing the works of such poets as Mark Akenside, Thomas Gray, William Wordsworth, John Keats, Lord Byron, Felicia Hemans, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti alongside promotions and receptions of the national museum, he illustrates the connections between lyric expression and material exhibition. Throughout the book, he argues that the operative dialogue between aesthetics and ideology enables rather than obstructs critical reflection."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The development of interactive displays has transformed the traditional museum world in the last decade. Visitors are no longer satisfied by simply gazing at worthy displays in glass cases - they expect to have hands-on experience of the objects and be actively involved with the exhibits, learning informally and being entertained simultaneously. Hands-on museums and science centres provide the most remarkable example of how museums are redefining their roles in society - improving access to real objects and real phenomena, so that they can be enjoyed by more people. In recent years museums have been thrust into intense competition for the public's time and money with all branches of the leisure industry, from commercial theme parks to retail shopping and home entertainment. This has upset the traditional stability of the museum and their visitors. A hands-on approach encourages a broader visitor base, which in turn helps to bring in additional revenue at a time of declining public subsidy. Tim Caulton investigates how to create and operate effective exhibitions which achieve their educational objectives through hands-on access. He concludes that the continuing success of hands-on museums and science centres hinges on attaining the very best practice in exhibition design and evaluation, and in all aspects of operations, including marketing and financial and human resource management. Hands-On Exhibitions provides a practical guide to best practice which will be indispensable to all museum professionals and students of museum studies.
