About this product
- DescriptionPanama is an ethnically diverse country with a recent history of political conflict which makes the representation of historical memory an especially complex and important task for the country's museums. This book studies new museum projects in Panama with the aim of identifying the dominant narratives that are being formed as well as those voices that remain absent and muted. Through case analyses of specific museums and exhibitions the author identifies and examines the influences that form and shape museum strategy and development.
