Making Museums Matter Series/CARMAH:

Sociomuseology (University of Wuerzburg)

10:30 am

What is Sociomuseology? What are the possibilities of these practices? Where and how did this school of thought develop? Join the conversation between Prof. Dr. Mario Moutinho with Moana Souto MA (Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, Lisbon) and students of Würzburg to explore how we can engage in the development of public policies, activism, and protest in the field of museums. Ole Joerss will be reporting from the Museu da Maré in Brazil. All participants are invited to discuss the topic and reflect on the role of museums in the process of creating public policies. This online event will take place in German and English on Tuesday, 30 November 2021, organized as part of the „Making Museums Matter“ series by the Professorship of Museology at the University of Würzburg.
