Abstract:The ‘new museology’ may not be so new, after all, but it is nevertheless changing the thinking of museums worldwide, and has made striking inroads in the approaches adopted by many North American institutions. The author is curator of Ethnology at the Museum of Anthropology and associate professor in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology, University of British Columbia, where she teaches courses in museology and about Canada’s aboriginal inhabitants of the North Pacific coast. She is currently honorary consultant to Canada’s Cultural Property Review Board, on which she served as member for six years, and is the author of several publications.
